Paradise Camp Fire Wildfire
Elks Care ~ Elks Share
by Corrine Arehart
On November 8, 2018, Paradise Elks Lodge #2026 and the Community of Paradise, California were devastated by the Camp Fire Wildfire (named for Camp Creek where the fire originated) that ravaged through their town. The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (BPOE) members across the United States rallied together to help our fellow members with financial, food, and shelter needs.
The members of Keizer Lodge also raised money for the Paradise Elks Lodge membership. Members donated $1,000 and authorized matching funds up to $1,000. Members also voted to donate an additional $5,000 from our charitable funds account. On Monday, January 14, Keizer Lodge #2472 dispatched a total donation of $7,000, exemplifying Brotherly Love and living our mantra, Elks Care ~ Elks Share.
