L.O.T.E. Responds to a Need

The L.O.T.E. of Centralia Lodge # 493 worked with the Lodge to assemble and deliver over 50 Thanksgiving Baskets this past November. It was noted that many of the recipients did not have the proper personal care items needed and that these products cannot be purchased with food stamps. Therefore, the ladies have decided to collect personal care products at the 1st meeting of each month during the rest of the year. There will be a collection box in the clubroom for items anyone else would like to donate. A bag of products will then be given to all of the Thanksgiving Basket recipients next November. The following is a list of items to be collected each month. February - Bar Soap - 4 pack or more; March – Shampoo; April - Toothpaste and Toothbrushes; May – Deodorant; June – Mouthwash; July - Dish Soap; August - Paper Towels; September - Toilet Tissue; October - Laundry Detergent; November - Everything not having collected enough of. Good Job Ladies! Keep Up the Great Work of Elkdom! We know who the Best People On Earth really are.
