Fremont Elks Warm Homes for Veterans
Submitted By Joan White
The Fremont Elks Lodge recently provided two veterans with many of the necessary items that were needed to set up their new homes. Both veterans, who are clients of Abode Services, received microwaves, small kitchen appliances, dishes, glasses, silverware, bedding, pots/pans, towels and ovenware, along with cleaning and hygiene supplies. One of the recipients also needed a bed, which the lodge purchased for him.
During this delivery, the lodge also provided 32 dictionaries to Abode for use in the various educational and childrenÕs programs they provide to the shelter residents.
Community service and paying it forward are commitments Fremont Elks Lodge 2121 has made in keeping with their motto, ÒElks Care, Elks Share.Ó
