Join us for a late lunch or an early dinner —
we’re hosting a fundraiser for the Army of Hope!
The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the U.S.A. announced a plan in February 2003, to assist families who have had a father or mother called to active duty with the military reserve or National Guard. An Army of Hope, comprised of carpenters, electricians, mechanics, plumbers, attorneys, doctors, accountants, teachers, and professional people and tradesmen of every type, was mobilized by the Order of Elks. These volunteers are at the ready to help families of those patriots called to serve our nation. In almost 2000 Elks Lodges across America, over 800,000 members are poised to make minor repairs and provide professional services to keep homes functioning until loved ones return. For more than 135 years the Elks have been aiding their communities and making America a better place to live. They continue this mission of service one patriot’s home at a time.
Our mission statement is, “To assist our Active Military Servicemen and women, those severely Wounded in the line of duty, and our Fallen Hero families whose loved ones were killed in the line of duty. You can read more about the Elks Army of Hope here.
