Elks Community Builder of the Week

Austin, Texas, Lodge No. 201

When the going gets tough, families in the Lone Star State know they can count on the Elks. Austin, Texas, Lodge No. 201 uses its Elks National Foundation Impact Grant to hold activities for patients at The Dell Children’s Blood and Cancer Center and their families. Lodge members have rallied to support the project, and there are even waiting lists of volunteers to help out at the children’s events.

“Thank you Elks, for your support,” writes Mauren Wood, the Center’s Director. “It makes a difference every day for these children and their families.”

The Elks National Foundation helps Lodges serve their communities in significant and ongoing ways by awarding Impact Grants of up to $10,000. Any Lodge can apply for these competitive grants.
