Angels of America’s Fallen gets $10k donation from Rotary Club

Community

Angels of America’s Fallen received a check for $10,000 from the North Colorado Springs Rotary Club Wednesday. 

The money was raised during North Colorado Springs Rotary’s eighth annual mini golf tournament on August 23. The club surpassed its $6,000 goal. 

Angels of America’s Fallen is dedicated to honoring the legacy of our fallen military and first responders. They’ll use the money to help their children grow and develop into strong and successful adults. 

“Ten thousand dollars enables us to keep kids that we’ve already made a commitment to engaged in positive outlooks for their grief, to pay for their soccer, music, sports, art–whatever their thing might be–and keep them engaged in that year over year,” Lewis said. 

Lewis said they budget about $1,500 a year for each child.
