BUILDING A STRONG FUTURE
What it means to be an Elk
For 150 years, the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks has been dedicated to serving our fellow citizens. Here in Florida, the 56,000 men and women of the Elks in 100 Lodges from the panhandle to the Keys are enjoying the camaraderie, compassion, community outreach, and support that are all part of being an Elk.
BUILDING PEOPLE UP
Elks provide millions of dollars in assistance to the neediest among us:
The Army of Hope provides assistance to veterans and military families
The Elks Children’s Therapy Program brings mobile, in-home therapy services to children across the state
The 400-acre Elks Youth Camp in Umatilla builds character while simultaneously inspiring Florida’s youth by teaching respect and responsibility
In Home Therapy Services
provides in-home physical and occupational therapy to Florida children in need of such services. This rehabilitation is necessary to be rendered in the home because of the absence of these services locally or because of the patient being medically infirmed at home.
Bud Legere, our Exalted Ruler, has applied for the Elks National Foundation Gratitude Grant to provide nonperishable supplies for St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry which is sponsored by St. Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic Church.
Florida Elks Youth Camp
A project of the Florida State Elks Association, this beautiful and modern 405 acre complex provides a unique camping experience for 7 weeks during the summer to all children of Florida ages 9 through 13.
Army Of Hope
Since 1917, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks has demonstrated its compassion for the veterans of our armed forces through numerous programs and activities. Since 1946, the order has maintained the pledge, “So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.”
