Elks Community Builder of the Week

Portsmouth-Chesapeake, Va., Lodge No. 82

Anchors away! Portsmouth-Chesapeake, Va., Lodge No. 82 used its Elks National Foundation Gratitude Grant to help kids battling cancer. The Lodge partnered with the Roc Solid Foundation to build a play set for a local child fighting cancer.

“Being a part of one of these builds is a heartwarming, truly gratifying experience,” says Project Manager Thom Grubbs. 

The Elks National Foundation helps Lodges serve their communities by offering $2,000 Gratitude Grants. Lodges are eligible to apply for Gratitude Grants after meeting the National President’s per-capita goal.
