SARATOGA SPRINGS — Wilton Elks 161 recently used a portion of their Elks National Foundation Beacon Grant for the Mother Susan Anderson House.

Members of the lodge joined with family members to shop and deliver linens to the women and children's emergency shelter, which is located on Caroline St. in Saratoga Springs.

Together they delivered 12 sets of bed linen, 12 comforters and 6 blankets to the Shelter. The lodge would like to thank the volunteers and families who helped deliver the items for those in need. 

Every Elks Lodge is eligible to apply for the $3,000 Beacon Grant, introduced this year. In order to apply, the lodge has to actively serve the community. For more information visit www.elks.org/cip/grants/BeaconGrants.cfm.
