Meeting the Challenge!

As “Baby Season” approached this past spring, John & Liz Wade expressed concern for the Association to Rescue Kritters (ARK), Ruth Fruehauf’s non-profit organization located in St. Helen.  With the ARK’s funding having been diminished by an embezzlement, John & Liz offered a “Challenge” to the Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) trustees and staff.   Asking each of the trustees to donate a gift to support the ARK, John & Liz offered to match the total donations, up to $1,000.00.  Ruth is an RCCF trustee and John is one of the founding members of RCCF.   This was a wonderful way to help support a fellow trustee’s efforts to assist with the special needs of our local wildlife.  The challenge was met, and Ruth had the opportunity this past week to personally thank John & Liz, as well as RCCF, for their concern and generosity.
