packagesHickory – Hickory Elks Lodge #1654 saw a need to help Deployed Military Families who are experiencing hardships due to the Pandemic. As a direct result of the COVID pandemic, military families in our community are having difficulties paying their mortgages, rent, and buying food and other living essentials.

The Elks Lodge is here to give back and we continually strive to help our neighbors said Gary Gantt President of the Lodge. Our members care about others and have a sincere desire to support those in need.” Tracy Bentley Chair for the Committee created “Love Boxes” containing essential household items, such as toiletries, sanitizers for personal health care, and other household staples. These Boxes were distributed to 30 military families of our community. The boxes were picked up by the families at the Hickory Elks Lodge in a controlled sanitary environment while keeping proper social distancing.

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America serve the people and communities through benevolent programs, proving that “Elks Care and Elks Share”.
