As a fraternal benefit society, Modern Woodmen is dedicated to improving the quality of life for families and communities. The Hometown Hero Program gives Modern Woodmen members a chance to recognize others in the community who strive to do the same thing through volunteerism or an act of bravery.

Honors a member of the community
Chapter members choose a member of the community they would like to thank through this program. It can be a chapter member, but often it is another member of the community. To show appreciation for all the work they have done for the community, the chapter recognizes the honoree with a dinner or another gathering and presents them with a certificate and a $100 donation to the charity of their choice.  

Modern Woodmen helps pay for this activity and provides a certificate for the chapter to present to the recipient.

What is a Chapter?

In 2014, Modern Woodmen reimbursed chapters $183,590 for sponsoring 828 Hometown Hero events.
