The Elks National Veterans Service Commission provides $300 to help fund donations for items needed by Vets moving into permanent housing.  They are called Welcome Home Kits.  The Lodge partnered with Epic-Cure, Inc. and the Five Star Veterans Center to help two veterans,  We purchased an array of items including pots and pans, cookie sheets, kitchen towels/pot holders, glasses, dishes and many more things,  Pictured with Kevin Walsh, a member of our Lodge, is Sunny Mulford, the Executive Director of Epic-Cure. The Lodge will be reimbursed for the purchase of these items.
