FULLERTON...Fullerton Elks Lodge was recently awarded the Beacon Grant to sponsor a Fall  2020 "Family Fur-st Pet Food Pantry" community support effort.  This grant is part of the Community Investment Program of the Elks National Foundation (ENF), which is directed at charitable endeavors. 

The $3,500 grant, recently provided to the Lodge by ENF, and funds raised by the Lodge for a grand total of $4,300, was then donated to Orange County Animal Care to purchase and then distribute supplies of pet food for the pets of families and individuals, that are struggling financially due to the economic impact of COVID-19 such as recent job loss, and those pet owners who are homeless.

Additionally, 14 volunteers and friends from the Lodge prepared these pet food supplies/packages, or participated in a drive-thru distribution effort to the public.  Over 9,000 pounds of pet food was distributed. The Lodge was honored to be able to partner with our municipal government's Animal Care department and support our community! Photos:FullertonElks
