Elks Community Builder of the Week

Cocoa Beach, Fla., Lodge No. 2387

Elks from Cocoa Beach, Fla., Lodge No. 2387 know the importance of extracurricular activities. That’s why they partnered with the local high school, and last year raised a record $28,000 to help student groups ranging from the athletic department to the robotics team.

With the help of an Elks National Foundation Promise Grant, the Lodge helps students hold car wash fundraisers. Check out this news coverage of the Lodge’s partnership with the school.

The ENF awards $2,000 Promise Grants to the first 500 Lodges that pledge to host an event that helps build the character and competence of youth in their community. To find out more about Promise Grants and the Community Investments Program, visit www.elks.org/enf/community.
