The week of December 8th was very busy for the Orange Elks in supporting our community. During the week we delivered Christmas presents to the Eli Home. supported the Orange Police Department with their Shop with a Cop program, honored our Veterans, helped get out a message about Drug Abuse, prepared and delivered close to two hundred Christmas Baskets, held a Hoop Shoot and then had a Christmas Party for our kids.

Our lodge members delivered over one hundred and fifty Christmas gifts for the children at Eli Home. These gifts were donated by our lodge member. The Eli Home is a shelter for abused children and their moms.
