Hamden Elks Awarded Grants to Help Others

Elk National Foundation Grant Awarded to Hamden Lodge Aids Community Charities.

Hamden Lodge #2224 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks recently qualified for a $2,000 Elks National Foundation (ENF) Gratitude Grant.

Lodge members carefully shopped to spend half of this ENF Gratitude Grant, filling six carts with $1,000.46 worth of groceries for distribution among Hamden Food Bank, North Haven Congregational Food Pantry and Saint Anne’s Soup Kitchen.

The second half of the ENF Grant was used to support local veterans. The Connecticut Chapter of House of Heroes is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing free home repairs to military and public service veterans who cannot afford the repairs and/or are not physically capable of undertaking the repair work. 

Hamden Lodge has proudly served the communities of North Haven and Hamden for over 50 years. For Hamden Lodge membership information, please contact Andrew Caporossi at 203 248-2224.
