The donation came as a complete surprise, and at a really good time for the CCRC, which gives assistance to Sugar Creek residents in need. The CCRC helps people with food, medicine, utility assistance, and provides other needed services. The holiday season and coming of winter make the need even greater. Moose Lodge #10 also pledged to donate $100 a month throughout 2014, knowing that as generous as their donation was, the CCRC still needs more help. The month of November is the annual CCRC fund drive, and the Moose Lodge encourages others to follow their lead and donate to the CCRC.
The Sugar Creek chapter of the Moose Lodge has been around for more than 100 years. "That’s why we’re #10 out of all the Moose lodges in the world," Bruce Morgan said. The organization raises money for charities both local and worldwide. They host dances and dinners every Friday night, along with other activities during the week.
For more information about the Moose Lodge, contact Bruce Morgan at (816) 254-4309. The CCRC is located at the Gymnasium on Chicago Street. They are open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 p.m. to 3:30 if you need assistance or can make a donation.
