Special Recognition

Community of Drake

The community of Drake is deserving of a special recognition for the way in which the community members rallied together to support the Muyco family in their time of tragedy. The Koinonia Ladies Group from North Star Mennonite Church played a crucial role in collecting funds to help the family cover many of the funeral expenses. Drake School gathered financial support my creating a GoFundMe page. The village office also collected donations. Responding to the family's need and the organized efforts to provide help, the community and people from surrounding areas met all of the fundraising goals in a remarkably short time. The efforts of everyone involved demonstrate how welcoming communities support all members, especially during difficult times.
