Krispy Kreme Xeroderma Pigmentosum Day
St. George "Dixie" Elks and Ladies of the Elks annually support the Krispy Kreme Xeroderma Pigmentosum Day.
XP is a serious and rare disease that prevents otherwise healthy people from being exposed to UV rays. Consequently they must stay indoors.
Our Lodge purchases donuts from Krispy Kreme to support their efforts on research and aid a local family with 2 XP children. We take the donuts, 32 dozen this year, to Millcreek High School and give them to the students and faculty!
