The Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks (BPOE) takes on a very active task in supporting communities locally, throughout Arizona and on a national level. Elks Lodge #335, located on North 32nd. Street, is a hidden gem right here in our own neighborhood. This Lodge has many members whose mission is to help build a strong community. These members contribute and support such local programs as Veteran’s Dinners; The Thanksgiving Basket Program which provides food baskets for Veterans and their families; Dinners for our local Law Enforcement Officers and Fire Fighters; Drug Awareness Programs; Scholarships; Children’s Back to School Program providing new clothing and supplies for children; Young Readers Program; and programs that provide several local schools with dictionaries for their 3rd grade classrooms.
Their newest program, the Single Parent Relief Project, will offer support and assistance to single-parent families in need. On The First Saturday of each month these families will be welcomed into the Lodge for a hearty breakfast and each will be assisted with food, baby supplies, school supplies and more. The objective will be to assist 20 families in 2014.
Please join us on Saturday, March 8th from 9am to 2 pm for our Vendor Fair, featuring food trucks, arts and crafts booth, a DJ and Door Prizes. Free Admission and Parking at Elks Lodge #335, 14424 N. 32nd. Street.
