This community really knows how to come together under tough circumstances. FACF has been lucky enough, thanks to our generous donors, to step in and offer help through community grants when disaster has struck before. And even though we wish things like the flood of 2008 or the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t happen, the way Fort Atkinson residents unite in these tough situations is a silver lining.
The terrible storm Fort experienced this past weekend is no different. We have been beaming with pride over how our community is showing up for one another. From help with cutting down trees, picking up brush, feeding each other, or a simple phone charge – neighbors helping neighbors is so wonderful to see.
After trying to figure out how we can best help during this time we were inspired by our neighbor PremierBank and their generous offer to help the Evergreen Cemetery Association with their clean up and repair efforts. So, FACF will be matching up to $10,000 of PremierBank and community donations to the Evergreen Cemetery Fund.
If you would like to donate monetarily with a tax-deductible donation, you can write your check out to Evergreen Cemetery and drop off or mail to any PremierBank location. Or, donations can be mailed to: Evergreen Cemetery, c/o PremierBank P.O. Box 218, Fort Atkinson, WI, 53538. If you like your donations to be more hands-on, reach out to Evergreen Cemetery for volunteer clean-up times!
Thank you to every individual who has helped someone during this time – it’s what makes Fort great!
