Cedar City, Utah, Lodge No. 1556
“Thank you, Elks Lodge. Now I can see the world much brighter,” reads a note from Zandihr, who benefitted from Code Glasses.
Thanks to the Beacon Grant, the Cedar City Elks provided support and a healthy start for youth in need. The project also reenergized Lodge members, motivating them to get involved with the Lodge’s community service.
“This project was a success,” says Community Investments Program Project Manager JoAnn Aldridge. “Even members that aren’t involved in the Lodge came to help out.”
Through Beacon Grants, the Elks National Foundation gives Lodges the opportunity to develop an ongoing, charitable, Elks-driven community project. These $2,000 grants are available to all Lodges.
