Our group was formed in 1986 to provide financial assistance to a nine year old leukemia patient, Shannon Warner and his family. After Shannon’s passing the reminaing funds continued to be used by the association to assist other Moore Township and surrounding area residents.
The mission of our organization is to promote, coordinate, support, assist and organize efforts to meet financial needs of the residents of Moore Township and surrounding area without regard to race, religion or creed.
Each year, the association awards a $500 scholarship to a Moore Township high school senior to further his or her education. Also at the holidays, the association assists a family with gifts.
Those residents requesting help need to fill out an application and are interviewed at a meeting of the board. The board then reviews and considers each case. Board members are Paul Grube, Julie DeGroot, Jennifer Granda, Robin Buss, David Shaffer, Arlene Lily, Diane Schlegel, Jeffrey Kline, Amy Lane, Beth Ann Lerch, and Deborah Bartholomew.
We ask for your help so we can continue helping our residents that are in need of assistance. Moore Township Association for Families in Need is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and all donations are tax-deductible.
