Wellington, Ohio - May 2020

A month ago, the Wellington Eagles #2051 had the idea of giving back to the community with a food drive. Plans were made and it was determined that the Aerie would match up to $1,000 in cash contributions. When the event posted, Aerie member, and local business owner, Steve Neff of Wellington Music stepped up and donated the first $1,000. That inspired Eagles Trustee Bill Schramm to match that contribution with $1,000, from his business, Schramm’s Shirts & Cards. On hearing of the generosity of fellow business owners, David King of King Realty contacted the Eagles and added another $1,000. The Wellington Eagles added an additional $1,000, for a total of $4,000 in contributions for the Aerie food drive. On Saturday May 16, 2020, volunteers collected food and donations for Well Help. The food drive was deemed a success – they were able to bring in $4,398 in donations, half a trailer of food, supplies, and toiletries were collected for the Wellington Well Help food cupboard. At the end of the day the Wellington Eagles chose to contribute an additional $4,000 to the event, bringing the total contribution to $12,398.00.
