Modern Woodmen team up with MCC for brain health project
Local Modern Woodmen of America members along with support from McCook Community College students, helped make brain health a priority at Saturday’s final regular season basketball games in the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center.
Last week MCC students assembled kindness kits containing a variety of items: hot chocolate, positive chips, earbuds, notebooks, pencils, coloring books, games, stress relievers, bookmarks, magnets and water bottles. Those kits were distributed members of community through a display set up during Saturday’s games.
Modern Woodmen’s “Brain Health: Keep It Top of Mind” campaign is a nationwide initiative focusing on different ways to promote brain and mental health in the community each quarter – in February, donating kindness kits; in May, educating members and the community; in August, raising funds for organizations or individuals in need; and in October, honoring those who raise awareness of brain health.
