Elks donations brighten holidays
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — Dec. 10 was a busy day for Marshfield Elks Lodge #665. Bob Rennells, representing the Lodge, delivered $500 to the Soups or Socks food pantry as well as $500 to St. Vincent De Paul’s food pantry.
Rennells’ final stop was the Opportunity Development Centers in Marshfield, where he delivered $1,000 for their expansion project.
Twenty Elks members and volunteers also gathered at Festival Foods in Marshfield to pack Christmas food baskets. One hundred and seventy baskets valued at $7,600 were then stored in a truck provided by Mid-State Truck. The baskets were delivered on Dec. 12 by approximately 40 Elks and volunteers to families in Marshfield, Spencer, Stratford, and other surrounding communities.
Those interested in becoming involved in these or other Elk community projects should contact the Elks Lodge at 715-384-4202 and request a membership application.
