Fremont Elks provide holiday housewarming

Submitted By Joan White


The family of five needed several items to complete their home so the Lodge provided linens, pots and pans, dishes, hygiene products and other basics as a part of its Community Special Project program.

With the generous donation of an additional $1,000 from the 2121 RV Club, the Lodge was also able to provide new mattresses for bunk beds, new full size beds and chests of drawers for the family who had been sleeping on the floor. Statements Furniture in Fremont worked with the Lodge to make the items affordable.

Donations of a coffee table, microwave, bunk bed frames and a Christmas tree from Elk friends and members enabled the Lodge to provide everything the family needed for their new residence. In addition, Elks members provided gifts for the children and a complete Christmas dinner.

One of the family members has a birthday this month and said that this was going to be his best birthday and Christmas in a very long time.

Community service and "paying it forward" are commitments the Fremont Elks Lodge #2121 has made to our community.
