Army of Hope

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the U.S.A. announced in February 2003, a plan to assist families who have had a father or mother called to active duty with the military reserve or National Guard. An Army of Hope, comprised of carpenters, electricians, mechanics, plumbers, attorneys, doctors, accountants, teachers, and professional people and tradesmen of every type, has been mobilized by the Order of Elks. These volunteers will be at the ready to help families of those patriots called to serve our nation. In 2,100 Elks Lodges across America 1,100,000 members are poised to make minor repairs and provide professional services to keep homes functioning until loved ones return. For more than 135 years the Elks have been aiding their communities and making America a better place to live. They continue this mission of service one patriot's home at a time.
