Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building, golf course or pool. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.

New Brunswick Lodge Presents Commendable Charitable Contributions
Carrying out the cardinal principles of the Order, and in line with the excellent work it has already done in this field, New Brunswick, N. J., Lodge No. 324 recently voted to contribute $10,000 to the St. Peter's General Hospital and a like amount to the Middlesex General Hospital for the construction and equipment of a special operating room for crippled children and general orthopedics in each institution. In addition to the contributions of $10,000 to each of the hospitals, the Lodge has contributed $1,000 to the general building fund of each. The donations will come out of the general treasury of the Lodge and there will be no drives among the members or any public affairs to raise funds, the members voting to pay the donations from dues and initiation fees. The construction and equipment of the operating rooms will be done solely by the Lodge. Each institution will be paid the sums appropriated in ten equal yearly instalments. Brunswick Lodge has already a high record for work in this field. Last year, under the sponsorship of the Lodge, fully 100 children were treated at these institutions weekly, at an expense of approximately $4,000 a year. The recent action taken by the Lodge is perhaps the greatest practical demonstration of charity on the part of a fraternal organization ever witnessed in New Brunswick.
