Food for Veterans Inc. Receives Support from Holley-Navarre Lodge

2787 food for vets

On Oct. 18, Holley-Navarre Elks Lodge #2787 donated $600 to Food for Veterans Inc., a 501(c)3 Florida nonprofit organization operating on donations to provide food and essentials to honorably discharged veterans and active-duty military members in need of assistance. This donation was from proceeds from the lodge’s weekly bingo which is open to the public and is the primary source of funds for lodge charitable works in the community. Kate Mayor, Food for Veterans Inc. founder and CEO, said, “Donations such as this one help us provide food and essentials to a local veteran during our monthly open pantry days. Food for Veterans is open the third Friday and Saturday of each month. As we approach that last week of the month, many low-income veterans struggle between purchasing necessities such as medications or putting gas in their car and feeding themselves. Your donation will be used to purchase enough food to help him/her survive until the first when other possible organizational help is provided.”

Kate Mayor, Food for Veterans founder and CEO, accepts a donation from Holley-Navarre Lodge presented by Ben Gray, three-year trustee; Wendy Cocanour, bingo chairperson; and Kris Kane, Exalted Ruler.
