Alons family provides gift to benefit students

The Advancement Office recently received a family gift from the children of Ben and Maggie Alons, honoring their parentsí commitment to Christian education. Ben and Maggie Alons, from Sanborn, Iowa, were early, faithful supporters of Dordt College. Their children and grandchildren decided that one of the best ways to honor and recognize their parentsí commitment to Dordt College was to give a gift in their memory. Their gift is now part of the permanent endowment of the college, providing annual resources for students.

Members of the family who made the gift are Merl and Rosa Alons, Maynard and Gertrude Hofman, Leroy and Donna Alons, Sid and Marie Vander Griend, Dan and Matilda Alons, Roger and Janice Alons, Mike and Vicki Alons, Thomas and Sharon Beuzekom, Glen and Susan Kramer, Gerald and Deb Alons, Douglas and Patricia Sittig, Douglas and Kathleen Alons, and Joel and Nancy Abrahams.

We thank them for this wonderful gift to the college.
