Karen Wieland Face Mask Achievement
Karen Wieland, spouse of James Wieland – Illinois Black Hawk Life Member Club Treasurer personally made over 1,200 COVID-19 face masks. When the cold weather set in, Karen switched gears and started making fleece mittens for those in need in her community. A total of 100 pair of warm, handmade fleece mittens were donated to her Church for their Angel Tree project but Karen’s work didn’t stop there. To date, she has made 40 pair of fleece mittens that will be provided to needy children when the Black Hawk Life Member Club holds their ALL CHILDREN SHALL HAVE SHOES project in December! Kudos to Karen and thanks for all that you do to “answer the call of those in need.” Our Life Member Pioneer Partners are the BEST.
