UMGC Awards Grant to Clayton County Womenade

Clayton County Womenade would like to thank and acknowledge the generosity of the Upper Mississippi Gaming Corporation Board in awarding our cause a funding grant.
The funds will make it possible to help so many more of our neighbors that just need a hand UP, not a hand out. Clayton County Womenade is a non-profit organization of concerned citizens that awards funds requested by designated agencies from Clayton County to help with rent, utilities, transportation, basic needs and other unexpected expenses resulting from illness, injury, divorce, domestic abuse, etc. when other funding sources are unavailable or have been exhausted. There is no overhead, all donations made to the organization go directly to helping those in need.
In the four years of existence the organization has awarded almost $30,000 to many requests for help. The organization relies on donations of members and other concerned citizens “paying it forward”. Donations may be made by check payable to Clayton County Womenade at or mailed to Peoples State Bank in Guttenberg, PO Box 430, Guttenberg, IA 52052 or by PayPal by entering womenade@alpinecom.net as the recipient. The organization also receives Amazon Smile points and Thrivent Choice Dollars.
