Mankato Elks Lodge #225 received a Beacon Grant from the Elks National Foundation in the amount $2,000, which they used to supply South Elementary, North Elementary and St. Peter Middle School with totes loaded with all the supplies needed to assist more than five students per grade level as they returned to classes in early September.
The totes were filled with a backpack, and all the supplies listed on the grades supply list. The main goal of this program is to make sure the students entering school on their first day have the tools needed to learn. This takes the burden off the teacher and the parent when it comes time to attend class if the situation arrives that a child is in need.
Mankato Elks Lodge #225 is an organization that focuses on youth and veterans in the surrounding communities. Because Lodge #225 does not have a club, all of its fundraising efforts are returned directly to their community projects, such as its Back to School Program.
