Very simply put . . . "We help those less fortunate than ourselves, and have fun doing it!"
Consider Families in Need . . . we provide Christmas food and toy baskets to those who would otherwise have a bleak outlook for Christmas, or any other time of the year.
Consider our Promise . . . "So long as there are Veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget Them." We are here for any Veteran who needs help.
Consider our Texas Elks Children's summer camp in Ottine, TX . . . at the present time we offer 350 mentally or physically disadvantaged children a week of summer fun at our camp - with absolutely NO CHARGE to the family. We will even provide transportation.
Consider that we are the Doorway . . . for local High School students to apply for Elks National Foundation and TESA Scholarships and Grants. The Elks are the second largest annual provider of College Scholarships, behind only the United States government.
These are just a sampling of reasons why you can be Proud to be an Elk. If you're not already one of us, ask how you can become part of this great organization. E-mail your name and contact information to: firstname.lastname@example.org
