EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) – More than $13,000 was donated to help military families in need Saturday.

The Chippewa Valley Fraternal Order of Eagles presented the VFW Unmet Needs program with a check for $13,300. The Unmet Needs Program helps military families experiencing financial difficulties as a result of deployment or other military-related injury.

The group works year-round raising funds and supporting the community. "We're a non-profit group and we do funds and raise money and give it away to other non-profits. Our motto is people helping people," said Sallie Butcher, President.

The local Fraternal Eagles organization has been around for more than 80 years.
