Elks provide Thanksgiving dinners

The dinners included turkeys or hams, fresh vegetables, potatoes, rolls, stuffing, dessert and other items. A team of Elks and Live Violence Free personnel purchased and sorted the food for the families.

In addition to the Thanksgiving dinners, the Elks provide sack lunches, emergency food pantry items and emergency food vouchers.
