Fremont Elks Help Warm New Home for Veteran Family
Submitted By Joan White
On VeteranÕs Day, members of the Fremont Elks Lodge #2121 delivered numerous new items to Abode ServicesÕ Sunrise Village Emergency Shelter for a veteran family of five transitioning from the shelter into their own home.
Items included a microwave, bedding, pots/pans, dishes, silverware, cleaning supplies and other basics required to set up a new home. Throughout that week individual members of the Lodge provided the family a new refrigerator, a bed frame, couches, recliners, a television and a turkey.
Done under the LodgeÕs Community Special Project program, this is the second year the Fremont Elks have worked with Abode Services to provide household items such as the above to residents of the shelter transitioning into their own homes.
Community service and paying it forward are commitments Fremont Elks Lodge 2121 has made in keeping with their motto "Elks Care, Elks Share".
