Elks Community Builder of the Week

Crestwood, Miss., Lodge No. 2053

Crestwood, Miss., Lodge No. 2053 partnered with the St. Louis VA Medical Center to hold a welcome home celebration for returning soldiers. This celebration was made possible by an ENF Gratitude Grant, a component of the Community Investments Program. Elks volunteered their time and served 1,300 meals to veterans and their families at the celebration.

The ENF awards $2,000 Gratitude Grants to Lodges to directly address local needs. Lodges are eligible to apply for Gratitude Grants after meeting the GER’s per-capita goal. To find out more about Gratitude Grants, visit www.elks.org/enf/community.
