Veterans Programs

The Elks are committed to their mission,“So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.”

The Elks National Veterans Service Commission was established in 1946, immediately after World War II, with the sole mission of serving our nation’s veterans. Though much has changed since then, the Elks’ dedication to serve veterans and military members in need has never wavered. In VA clinics, veterans’ homes, USOs, homeless shelters and more, thousands of Elks volunteers give generously of their time, energy and resources to serve veterans and military members each year.

As the needs of today’s veterans changed, so have the Elks’ programs. Today, the Elks National Veterans Service Commission has many exciting programs and partnerships catering to veterans and military members and their families.

Through programs like the Elks National Veterans Service Commission, Freedom Grant, annual Brat Stands, and members support, Green Bay Elks is capable of providing support to our Veterans.  The lodge is able to provide Gas Cards to the Disabled American Veterans, Bus Passes to the outreach program at the Milo C Huempfner VA Clinic, playing cards for Vets, needed items of support for of the Volunteer Services at the Milo C Huempfner VA Clinic, as well as special events and meals for Veterans.

The lodge has begun an initiative to help the homeless Veterans in Northeast Wisconsin.  With the guidence of the local VA HUD coordinator the lodge has developed its Heroes Closet that will provide clothing, food, back packs, bed rolls, bus passes, and support to these forgotten heroes.  

Also "Soup for Vets", a monthly lunch provided by the lodge to Veterans and family as a thank you for their commitment. A program establish to provide Veterans an opportunity for fellowship, support, and gratitude. "Soup for Vets" is held every 2nd Wednesday of the month at the lodge. 

Striving to show so long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Green Bay Lodge 259 will never forget them.

Elks Care, Elks Share
