Santa Ana Elks Lodge Awarded a $10k Impact Grant
The Santa Ana Elks Lodge was one of nine Lodges in the country that was selected to receive a $10,000 Impact grant. The Elks National Foundation announcement of the grant is set forth in the video above.
With the Impact grant, we will establish a program entitled: “Empowering Women in Need: Elks’ Compassion in Action” to support unhoused women and children. Our Lodge will partner with WISEPlace (wiseplace.org) and Casa Teresa (casateresa.org) to provide support to unhoused women and unhoused women with children. We will provide support to the residents of WISEPlace and Casa Teresa by conducting two annual events at each facility where Lodge members will provide resources to assist with wellness, employment searches, support for expecting mothers and children, and general support.
If you are interested in volunteering for these events, please contact Project Director Lisa Darmousseh, PER. 714-547-7794
