Fremont Elks support Abode Services
Submitted By Joan White
On Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2, members of the Fremont Elks Lodge 2121 delivered household items to Abode Services' Sunrise Village Emergency Shelter for two families transitioning from the shelter into their own homes. Among the items the families received were dishes, silverware, bedding, pots/pans, microwaves, rugs, and cleaning products. Each family also received a generous gift certificate to purchase any remaining basic necessities or food items needed.
Under the Lodge's Community Special Projects program for 2012-2013, the Lodge has provided basic necessities, beds and furniture to five families transitioning from the shelter into their own homes. Community service and "paying it forward" are commitments Fremont Elks Lodge #2121 has made to our community.
