Elks Community Builder of the Week

Hillsdale, Mich., Lodge No. 1575
Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day, and Elks at Hillsdale, Mich., Lodge No. 1575 want to make sure even the tiniest members of their community know they are loved. Using an Elks National Foundation Gratitude Grant, Lodge members came together to ensure babies in Hillsdale have a safe place to sleep. Elks assembled 13 baby cribs at the Lodge for a local social service agency. The cribs then went to babies in need, along with blankets, sheets and pillows—all provided by the Elks.

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 for Foundation giving.
