Florence Elks received Beacon Grant

on Tuesday, 17 July 2018. Posted in Local News, FEATURES

The Florence Elks applied for and received a Beacon Grant for $1,500 from the Grand Lodge to build twelve kitchen kits. The Florence Elks Kitchen Kit program provides basic supplies such as plates, silverware and pots all the way to a toaster oven and coffee maker. These kits are built to be given to homeless veterans that are transitioning into permanent housing. All the supplies are packed into a tub and a trash can for the recipients use. We provide the kitchen kits to the Veterans Resource Center of Florence for distribution to the transitioning veterans. This is the third set of kitchen kits that the Beacon Grant has helped us provide to our local veterans community.
