  • General Rental
  • Fast Freddy’s Car Wash
  • Pic Pac Grocery

You can also find backpacks at the Frankfort Simon House. Many thanks to everyone who helped distribute these backpacks, and to the generous grant from the Elks National Foundation that helped fund this endeavor!

Frankfort Elks Donate $2,000 in Groceries to Franklin County Senior Citizens

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in News | Posted on 05-09-2018

The Franklin County Senior Citizens Center provides a number of services to seniors in our community, including an emergency food pantry. This pantry helps seniors who are having trouble covering the cost of their food during any given month. Each year, our lodge steps in to help by donating $2,000 in food and groceries. This gift was made possible through a Beacon Grant from the Elks National Foundation.

This year is no exception. Pictured above is Diana Rogers (left), Outreach Coordinator for the center, and Frankfort Elk Bill Moore, PDDGER (right). Also in attendance but not pictured was Frankfort Elk Sandy Moore.

This donation has become a yearly tradition for our lodge, and we’re proud to help Franklin County’s seniors in need. Want to get involved? Check out our Membership page for information on how you can become a member!
