Canoga Park Elks Donates Grants


On Feb 1, 2021, The Canoga Park Elks Lodge #2190 awarded Freedom Church $7500 as part of the Elks National Foundation’s Gratitude and Beacon Grants. This year due to the impact of the Covid pandemic, we were able to combine these grants together to provide much-needed support and assistance to our community and then present them to a qualifying recipient for providing Covid-related relief to the community.

We were pleased to present the grant funds to Freedom Church to support their weekly food pantry that is open and available to the community. This service was setup in direct response to the current pandemic situation and relies on community donations and support to supply food to the many in our community in dire need including families and children.

The grants were presented by Elks Exalted Ruler Jeff Mackie, Chairman of the Trustees Randy Lewis, along with Chaplain Donna Swavely and Inner Guard Jim Swavely and received on behalf of Freedom Church by Pastor Justice Coleman, Pastor Maria Coleman, Director Pastor Richard Rodriquez, and Director Vanessa Rodriguez.
