Why I Joined

By Elks National Foundation Communications Associate Christine Robinson

Last night I had the unique opportunity to join an organization that I’ve worked closely with for the past year. Since I started working at the Elks National Foundation, I’ve heard about all of the amazing initiatives Lodges are organizing in their own communities. Through my conversations with Elks—in my role in the Donor Services department and now in my role in Communications—I’ve heard many reasons for why people are involved and why they support the Foundation.

My time at the ENF has brought me to an understanding of why some people choose to join the Elks. Charity—one of the four virtues of Elkdom—inspired me to join the Order. For the past year, I’ve seen the Elks through the eyes of the ENF, now I can broaden my understanding. I look forward to learning about the other three virtues, Fidelity, Brotherly Love and Justice.

Stay tuned for updates from my fellow co-workers to read what inspired them to join!
