On Wednesday May 24th 2017 Members of the Silver City Elks Lodge 413 were out in force and presented a new pair of shoes to First Graders at Hurley, Bayard, Central, and to First and Second Graders at San Lorenzo Elementary Schools 120 children overall.
This is part of the Elks Community Investment Program and was made possible by a Gratitude Grant from the Elks National Foundation. In the presentation of the shoes, Students were encouraged to stay active, continue to read, and ‘run away’ from drugs during the Summer.
As Elk’s Members, we believe and practice Elks Care and Elks Share by donating some $40,000 plus locally and over $300 million across the nation every year. Our primary focus is on Veterans and Youth. Each year we give every 3rd grader in both Silver and Cobre School Districts a new dictionary and support many of the athletic and academic programs. We encourage the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love, and Fidelity. If you have any interest in being a part of the Elks or would like more information you may find it at www.silvercityelks.comand www.elks.org.
