The PLUS Midwest Chapter had another fabulous golf outing at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club on June 6, 2019. The weather was beautiful and a wonderful time was had by all. Thank you to all the sponsors, golfers and volunteers for making this annual event a huge success. All proceeds benefit the PLUS Foundation, which provides grants to charities across the U.S. and Canada. This year’s golf tournament is estimated to raise nearly $18,000 for the PLUS Foundation. Thank you!

On Tuesday, May 7, the North Central Chapter presented a PLUS Foundation Chapter Charity grant to Brian Peterson, Chief Financial Officer of the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans. This is the 2nd year the Chapter has nominated the organization for grant funds, and the $5,000 grant will go to veterans’ assistance for homelessness, employment, and legal support. The chapter plans to do a volunteer activity later in the year to continue supporting this great organization.
Thank you to the North Central Chapter and to the PLUS Foundation!

We’d like to send a special thank you out to the Hartford Chapter, who recently held their annual Diaper Drive in support of My Sister’s Place. The Diaper Drive took place on March 21 and 29, and the Chapter was able to collect over 25,000 diapers!
My Sister’s Place is a local shelter and support organization for families who are homeless due to domestic violence, eviction, or unemployment, and serves approximately 1,200 people each year through its multiple programs. The diapers collected by this drive will go to help families in need throughout the area. On average, about 5,000-6,000 diapers are used monthly, and this drive accounts for almost half of their yearly need. Importantly, public assistance vouchers can only be used for food and not diapers or other necessities, so donating diapers is the equivalent of handing money directly to those in need.
The committee was able to secure donations from several key corporate sites including XL, Travelers, Willis Towers Watson, Insurity, AIX, Raymond Law Group, LLC, and Hanover. They hope to do even better next year!
Thank you to the Hartford Chapter for their wonderful effort in support of a good cause!
