COVID-19 Madeline Island Emergency Fund

St. John’s United Church of Christ received a significant donation to create a COVID-19 Madeline Island Emergency Fund. The Fund’s purpose is to help full-time island residents bridge a financial gap due to lost/reduced income, extraordinary expenses, or temporary hardship as a result of the impact of COVID-19. The donation was given directly to St. John’s UCC for the purpose of providing immediate assistance to islanders.
