Elks Complete Veterans Fund Raising Program

On Tuesday  July 29, 2008, Mission Viejo Saddleback Valley Elks Lodge 2444, under the leadership of Exalted Ruler, Mike Holohan, joined the national fundraising drive for returning veterans.

On November 10, 2007, the leader of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the U.S.A., past Grand Exalted Ruler, F. Louis Sulsberger, addressed thousands of veterans assembled on the Mall in front of the capital in Washington, D.C. for the 25th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. In his speech he told of Elks commitment to our veterans and that our help is needed more than ever.

In December 2007, F. Louis Sulsberger announced that The Order of Elks, as part of our “Army of Hope” program, is teaming up with the Vietnam Veterans Assistance Fund (VVAF in a national initiative to raise funds to assist soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan as well as all veterans of the nation's wars. A new partnership was created between the Elks and the charitable affiliate of the Vietnam Veterans of America, The Vietnam Veterans Assistance Fund renamed its Coin Can Donation Program, “The Michael F. Manning National Veterans Program”, as a tribute to Michael, who directed the Elks National Veterans Service Commission for over 14 years and passed away July 22, 2007

Proceeds from this program will help benefit veterans in healthcare issues, homelessness services, and transitioning services back to civilian life

Elks Volunteers  requested permission from business owners to place coin banks in prominent locations within their businesses with the expectation that customers will make coin donations.  Additionally, the coin banks were  placed in Elks Lodges all over USA.

As an added incentive to coin bank hosts, and as a token of our appreciation, each business participant  received a free web site ad on the Lodge 2444 web site for the duration of the program.

This is another program that is designed to keep us true to our pledge: "So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them." And now we've broadened our program to include outpatients and veterans who are homeless from funds raised by the Vietnam Veterans of America Fundraising Program in honor of Michael F. Manning -"Can-Coin Program"

Lodge 2444continued the program under ER Jim Humphry.  The last deposit to the program was made September 19, 2009 for $30.81 which brought the total lodge contribution to the program  $2,014.73

Lodge Veterans Chairman, Leo Hazell expressed his thank to all the lodge members that made the veterans fund raiser a success.
