B.P.O.E helps disabled youngsters

More than $3, 025, 359 has been contributed this year by members of Elks Lodges throughout California and Hawaii to be used in treating children with disabilities.

During the recent annual Elks convention at Fresno, Calif.,Jay Bryan, exalted ruler of Lake Tahoe Lodge 2094 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, contributed $3,750 that was raised by members of the Lake Tahoe Lodge.

“We are pleased and proud that members of our local Elks Lodge were so generous with their dollars and time in this important undertaking, Bryan said.

Over the past 51 years the 108,000 members from throughout California and Hawaii have turned over more than $66,000,000 to the California-Hawaii Elks Major Projects, Inc., which administers the nonprofit charitable corporation.

All the funds are devoted solely to providing hospital and medical services, vision screening and therapy treatment to children with a broad range of disabilities. Without the Elks- supported donations many of these children would not receive such treatment.

The year-long fund-raising campaign is capped by an impressive ceremony at the annual Elks convention when representatives of lodges from throughout California and Nevada present their donation to Major Projects and Elks Association leaders.

The raising of funds to aid children with disabilities is just one of the many philanthropic and patriotic projects that mark the Elks’ contribution to the community.
