Fremont Elks Support Troops and Local Shelter
Submitted By Joan White
Fremont Elks Lodge #2121 ended the 2012-2013 Elk year with donations to troops serving our country overseas and to Abode Services' Sunrise Village Emergency Shelter.
The Lodge purchased supplies for the troops which included hygiene items, puzzle books, socks, snack foods, gum, pens, paper and envelopes. Volunteers from Operation Mom packaged and shipped the items.
Lodge members delivered cotton mattress pads and crib sheets to the shelter and also provided the shelter's kitchen with much-needed silverware, plates and coffee mugs.
Community service and "paying it forward" are commitments the Fremont Elks Lodge #2121 has made in keeping with our motto "Elks Care, Elks Share".
