Coldwater, Kansas (March 22, 2021)—The Kansas Masonic Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to benefiting Kansas communities, has partnered with Comanche Lodge No. 295 to donate $2,400 to Comanche County High School and Ashland High School students.

The lodge has previously donated to local high school students and continues to support education throughout the community.

“Comanche Lodge No. 295 strives to seek out and serve the needs of individuals in the community, with an emphasis on the youth and financially disadvantaged,” said Comanche Lodge No. 295 Secretary Cecil Puderbaugh.

To further their mission of serving young individuals in the community, the Brothers at Comanche Lodge No. 295 have teamed up with the Kansas Masonic Foundation to provide a monetary donation of $2,400 to support high school students attending Comanche County High School and Ashland High School.
