Our lodge could not survive without volunteers! If you have been wanting to volunteer at the Lodge and have not found the right job or have not been contacted, the aim this year is get as many new members involved with the lodge and to help give some relief to those that have been doing the same jobs for so many years. To volunteer contact the Office.
Become an Organ Donor: Transplantation is one of the most remarkable success stories in the history of medicine. But despite continuing advances in medicine and technology, the need for organs and tissue is vastly greater than the number available for transplantation. Transplantation gives hope to thousands of people with organ failure and provides many others with active and renewed lives. To learn more, please visit Donate Life America.
Help our Veterans
Please pick up a few items for the Veterans residing at the Yountville Veterans Home. Together we Elks can help improve their quality of life.
This Year’s “Per Member” Goal is $1.00 per week = $52. Will You Help?
Feed your purple pig and bring it to the lodge on your next visit!
It is such an easy way to help the kids… Find the BOX TOPS 4 Education icon on product boxes, cans and wrappers. Cut out the icons & bring them to the lodge’s collection container in the lobby. Thanks to all who are collecting BoxTops. You are making a difference in a child’s life.
