Lake Placid Elks Donate to Cereal for Summer
- Written by Evelyn Cresse
Lake Placid Police Department notified the community that many local children rely on school meals for proper nourishment and called on the community to assist in donations. Lake Placid Elks Lodge donated through a special account at the lodge called Children’s Charity Fund. The charity fund was set up by donations from members, Past Exalted Rulers, Ladies of the Elks and Past Lady Presidents. This fund helps with sending children in need to the Florida Elks Youth Camp, Christmas for kids, and food baskets for the needy during the holidays.
Members PER Jim, Richard and Karolyn Lind went shopping and delivered 200 boxes of cereal, Pop-Tarts®, breakfast bars and oatmeal to the Lake Placid Police Department for their Cereal for Summer program. Exalted Ruler, Bob Johnston, said, “this is what the Elks are all about, helping our community! Elks Care and Elks Share.”
