FULLERTON...Fullerton Elks Lodge conducted a food collection drive on February 5th.  Members brought cans, jars, packages, bags and boxes of food to the Lodge to assist families and individuals in our community suffering from food and financial insecurity due to COVID-19's impact and other factors. 

The food items, totaling approximately 500 pounds, were picked up by Pathways of Hope, located in Fullerton, which serves as a direct food distribution point for Orange County's Food Band (Second Harvest).
