Check out our renewed efforts to assist Masonic widows and widowers!
Through Ohio Masonic Home Resource Center we are able to reach out directly to any widows or widowers. We can mail out a widows/widowers packet to any Mason or widow upon the death of their spouse. Included in this packet will be information on important documentation to gather and numbers to call (Social Security, Medicare, etc.), as well as, information on grief and loss, local resources and contact information for the Resource Center Liaison closest to the surviving spouse. We will enclose pamphlets tailored to their situation and follow-up with a sympathy card. This is another way to express our Masonic Obligation of caring for our widows.
Our goal is to reach individuals before they are in crisis to be their advocate and to support them through the grieving process. We need your help in our efforts. We are asking if you would be able to provide information from your current widows lists. This will allow us to contact these individuals and mail updated Resource Center information and newsletters to those who may be in need of assistance. In the newsletter, we plan to offer information on topics such as senior scams, Medicare benefits, estate planning, caregiver stress, and health and wellness tips. This list will not be used for solicitation purposes, and any individual who chooses may be removed from the mailing list.
In districts where we have a Masonic Volunteer Program committee, our goal is to utilize willing volunteers to also follow-up with those widows and widowers to offer additional support as needed. Contact us by:
Mail: OMH Resource Center | Attn: Becky Cason | 2655 W. National Rd. Springfield, OH 45504
