Donations Fall & Winter 2022

Many, many thanks to the alumni and friends of Arrowbear who donated to our Scholarship Fund. Donations from the Fall Newsletter totaled an astounding $61,428.01. We are particularly grateful because we know these are difficult times with families trying to recover after losing their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic. People are struggling to pay their monthly bills with rising costs and the effects of inflation.

Every donation is appreciated. We receive amounts from $10 to hundreds of dollars. It all adds up. Don’t worry about waiting until you can give more at some point in the future. Any amount makes a difference. It’s always a wonderful surprise to visit the mailbox and hear how you’re doing and what is keeping you busy. Please keep in touch and give when you can.  We’d love to hear from you.
