Frankfort Elks Donate Winter Supplies and Clothing to the Lexington VA

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge News, News | Posted on 10-18-2018

Recently, the Frankfort Elks Lodge donated 20 backpacks filled with supplies to the Lexington VA Center on Leestown Road. Funded by a grant from the Elks National Foundation, the backpacks contain emergency first aid kits, hygiene kits, ponchos, a Mylar blanket, socks, gloves, sock hats, flashlight, food gift card, chap stick, and other useful items. The backpacks will be given to the homeless veterans that come into the clothing room at the VA for clothes. The Elks also donated several gently used clothing items to help keep the clothing room stocked as winter approaches.

The Elks have pledged that “So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.” These donations represent a part of Frankfort Lodge’s commitment to fulfilling that pledge.

The Elks Most Valuable Student Scholarship is a chance for graduating seniors to win up to a $50,000 four-year scholarship to aid with the cost of a college education. Last year, Frankfort Lodge sponsored David Ma, a senior graduating from Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School in Lexington, as one of its candidates for this scholarship. David was selected among the 20 finalists that traveled to Chicago earlier this year, and ended up as the National Runner-Up, winning a $40,000 four-tear scholarship.

Recently, the Elks National Foundation released a new video featuring David, who is now attending Harvard University. You can check it out above.

If you’re a member of the Class of 2019, or know someone who is, you can find all the information on this year’s scholarship, as well as the online application, over on Elks.org.

Frankfort Elks Make a $2,000 Donation to Kids Cancer Alliance

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge News, News | Posted on 10-11-2018

Prior to our lodge meeting on October 1, 2018, the members of the Frankfort Elks Lodge #530 presented a $2,000 donation to the Kids Cancer Alliance. The Alliance operates Camp Indian Summer, located in Shelby County. This camp lets kids with cancer build friendships and enjoy a camp experience they would otherwise not be able to have, with nurses, trained volunteers, and a staff doctor on hand to ensure every camper’s safety. The lodge’s gift will pay the full cost of attendance for two campers next summer. The funds donated represent part of the funds raised by the Lodge’s recent Charity Golf Scramble.
