Christmas Toy Drive 2021

Toy Drive and Donation

Thank you to our members who took the time to generously donate toys to those children who are less fortunate in the Banning-Beaumont Pass Area. Joyce Bryant and Kelliey Matthews delivered the toys to the Banning Chamber of Commerce in person. Because of your donations, the Lodge gave over 50 toys to the City of Banning that were distributed during their Downtown Christmas Celebration. Children from the area were able to sled down a snow hill, enjoy music, games, and visit Santa and Mrs. Claus.  Brigg and Kelliey Matthews had the honor of representing the Lodge as the Claus’ and distributing all the toys to nearly 400 children. The Banning Chamber was very grateful to the Elks Lodge and their donation of toys and time, saying that the Elks Lodge saved the day. Your generosity ensured they had a toy for every child, down to the last one.
