Each year we are partnered with community services and add individual projects along the way.
THUNDER MOUNTAIN ALL ABILITIES PARK
For children with special needs. Donations from the Dixie Elks Lodge and Utah Elks Association helped make this possible.
RED ROCK PARTNER
On February 16, 2017 our Exalted Ruler, Leo Lange, and Trustee, Bob Matteson, were presented a "Red Rock Partner" appreciation plaque for the donation that the "Dixie" Elks Lodge made to the new St. George Area Chamber of Commerce Business Center.
TEDDY BEAR PROJECT
These teddy bears are given to help comfort children in the ER who are sick, injured, don't feel well, or frightened of blood work or tests that need to be done. Giving them something to hold brings them comfort.
Due to your generous donations, over 1,000 children have received teddy bears at Dixie Regional Medical Center. This effort has not gone unnoticed.
A plaque is hanging in the ER waiting room thanking the "Dixie" Elks Lodge”
BACKPACK FOR KIDS
MANY THANKS to all of the Elks members who came out to support Backpacks For Kids on August 3-4. We organized and filled over 800 backpacks with required school supplies and then delivered them to more than 40 Washington County area schools.
