The local Elks Lodge #829 members delivered approximately nearly $900 worth of diapers, baby clothes and other baby care items and money to the St. Gerard Campus to support mothers and pregnant women in need in St. Augustine back on late May.
The St. Augustine Elks Lodge 829 is a “non-political, non-sectarian fraternity, and strictly American fraternity,” according to their website elks829.com. The purpose of the fraternity is “to promote and practice the four cardinal virtues of charity, justice, brotherly love and fidelity; to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its members; to quicken the spirit of American patriotism and cultivate good fellowship.”
