BUILDING PEOPLE UP Through Community Programs
Together, we are making a BIG difference!
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.
There has not been any activity since the closed out the Beacon Grant March 31 due to the coronavirus. Prior to the pandemic, though, Legere and his wife, Sandy, spent many volunteer hours purchasing nonperishables and replenishing and distributing food from the pantry. The Pantry serves needy families and those who are homeless in the depressed area of the city. This will be the third year that the lodge has supported the pantry.
