From the Elks National Foundation
The Salem Elks Lodge has had another standout year for our annual holiday charity projects. Together we volunteered more than 330 hours, drove over 750 miles, and donated nearly $22,000 work of items and food to those in need. When taking the value of volunteer hours and miles this equates to over $30,000 in charitable support to the Salem Community serving students with disabilities, the families of our national guard members and veterans, domestic violence survivors, and more who have been in need this holiday season. Thank you to all of our volunteers who have helped make this possible. Below are some pictures from our various projects this year.
Elks National Foundation Promise Grant Project: Shopping for the Kids of Veterans and National Guard Members. This year we shopped for 19 families with over 40 kids. Total impact of this project was nearly $10,000
Elks National Foundation Beacon Grant Project: Shopping for the Kids at the Oregon School for the Deaf. This year we bought shoes, warm clothes, and new towels and sheet sets for the dorms. Total impact of this project was nearly $5,400
