ELKS NATIONAL FOUNDATION is vital for our communities.

 

Elks National Foundation update:

As of 12/6/2017 the Salem Elks Lodge has donated $3,241.60 to the Elks National Foundation for a per Member amount of $5.17 exceeding the GERS goal for the year. In turn we where eligible for all grants, we applied for 5 totaling $10,000 and were awarded a total of 4 grants for $8,000. We used those grants to provide 150 backpacks to kids heading back to school. 20 tablets and Google Play Cards to the veterans living a the Edward C. Allworth Lebanon Veterans Home. Shopped for the kids in need at the Oregon School for the Deaf. And provided Christmas to the families of 5 veterans who have served this country. All said and done, thanks to donations and discounts from businesses such as Walmart, Journeys Shoes, Kohls, and Dicks Sporting Goods we used our $8,000 in grants to provide over $13,000 in assistance to those in need this lodge year. I would like us all to take a moment to thank those who made all of it possible thanks to their time and dedication.
