Elks Step Up for Moving Vets

Elks Step Up for Moving Vets

SARATOGA SPRINGS — As veterans in our area have transitioned into permanent housing, some are still having difficulty obtaining the necessities to live on their own. The Saratoga-Wilton Elks Lodge, through various events, recognized and addressed this problem after getting to know men and women veterans living in Ballston Spa.

Members of Saratoga-Wilton Elks Lodge #161 recently delivered about 100 new items to the veterans, helping ease their distress after they moved. Donated items included vacuum cleaners, pots and pans, dishes and microwaves, just to name a few. 

The project was made possible by a grant from the Elks National Foundation (ENF), a charitable arm of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. This year, the foundation will award $12.53 million. 

Donations to the ENF can be made online at
