Brownsburg Sertoma Awarded $1000 Grant

By Peg McRoy Glover

The Brownsburg Sertoma Club was awarded a $1000 grand from Sertoma International that will be used toward their annual Christmas project to help families in need.

This is the sixth year Sertoma has done this project. This last Christmas they provided help to eight families and 23 kids with $394 per family with a total of $3,149.77.

Brownsburg Sertoma partners with the Lincoln and Brown Township Trustees in identifying needy families.

“The Brownsburg Sertoma Christmas Program touched the lives of families who were in emergency need this past December,” said Nate Mantle, Brown Township trustee. “I was unsure whether any of these families would have Christmas at all this year—they were each struggling to cover their basic needs.

“I’m rarely asked to identify people who can be helped this way, so I’m thankful the Brownsburg Sertoma service organization is here to help in times of need and bring some joy in difficult times.”

The Brownsburg Sertoma Club is a service organization dedicated to improving the life of those in need and helping individuals impacted by hearing loss. Sertoma stand for ‘service to mankind.’ They meet the second and fourth Mondays of the month, 6:00 p.m., at The Locale restaurant (formerly Dawson’s II).
