America's VetDogs Fundraiser

The American VetDogs Organization invites the public to their fundraising event on April 18th and 19th.

American VetDogs provides service dogs to Military Veterans from all periods of service (WWII to current). There is no cost to the veteran for this amazing dog which has been trained for each individual need. The organization is a non-profit that is funded by donations and fundraising. Any amount that can be spared will be greatly appreciated.

The event takes place starting at 10 am each day and will be held at the Bloomington Rural King at 3201 West IN-45 (Bloomfield Road).

Monroe County United Ministries Spring Tea & Auction

Monroe County United Ministries' (MCUM) Spring Tea is right around the corner! This annual event is a fun afternoon where more than 250 community members get together for tea and snack, listen to stories from our clients, and have a silent auction to support our programs at MCUM.

Last year, silent auction donors helped us raise about $20,000, which is the equivalent of:

  • Support of 6 children in MCUM's Compass Early Learning Center for one year:
    • flu shots for the children and parents
    • parent workshops
    • 616 meals

This year's Spring Tea will be held on Sunday, April 26th, proceeds from this event go to supporting our programs and responding to our neighbors in need.
