National Community Focus
The WoodmenLife National Community Focus of fighting hunger unites members of the WoodmenLife family, as well as our sales and Home Office associates, to make a difference. WoodmenLife also supports efforts to fight hunger in its corporate giving.
WoodmenLife Fights Hunger with National Community Focus
Events like organizing food drives and stuffing backpacks for schools are an important part of the thousands of community service events WoodmenLife and its members organize each year to support families, give back to communities and celebrate our country.
Building on a long history of giving back and helping others, the WoodmenLife National Community Focus has been actively fighting hunger in local communities across the country since 2015.
“The need to address this widespread problem is even greater now than it was when we launched the National Community Focus of fighting hunger in 2015. We are continually humbled to see how dedicated all the members of the WoodmenLife family are to this effort.”
Patrick L. Dees
WoodmenLife President & CEO

Building Partnerships to Fight Hunger
In addition to partnering with local schools and food banks, we’ve also partnered with the following organizations to make an even bigger difference.
In 2020, WoodmenLife was named a Leadership Partner of Feeding America® when its members across the country banded together to raise more than $1 million in less than a month during the COVID-19 pandemic. Going forward, WoodmenLife is working with Feeding America to find even more ways to support America’s food banks.

WoodmenLife also gives back in Omaha, NE, where the organization has been headquartered since our founding in 1890. WoodmenLife associates donate their time to volunteering with these partners on a regular basis, and WoodmenLife organizes fundraisers throughout the year.
