On July 17, Ely Elks Lodge No. 1469 donated $2,000 to CACH (Communities Against Childhood Hunger), the committee, which distributes packs of nutritious food to needy children each weekend.
The Ely Elks Lodge received this money through a grant, called the Gratitude Grant, which is available to lodges that meet the Grand Exalted Rulers per member goal for Elks National Foundation (ENF) giving. The grants are available for local charitable projects. For information on grants available or on becoming a member of Ely Elks Lodge No. 1469, call 289-4904.
