La Crosse Masons hand out donations to local organizations

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – La Crosse’s Masonic Lodge handed out big checks to local organizations Tuesday.

WAFER Food Pantry, The Center: 7 Rivers LGBTQ Connection, and The Parenting Place all received donations.

The Masonic Lodge had their donations matched with donations from the state-wide Masonic organization.

The Parenting Place is planning on using the money for their diaper bank, which helps any family in need.

“A lot of these families have more than one child in diapers, and when your budget is tight, that makes a big impact,” says Fund Development Director Nell Saunders-Scott. “Sometimes families worry more about where the next diaper will come from more than where the next meal will come from.”

The Center: 7 Rivers LGBTQ Connection got a check for $1,000.

The Parenting Place and WAFER Food Pantry both received checks for $2,000.
