The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks is a nationwide organization of over a million of America's finest citizens. We love this country and desire to preserve its cherished institutions, traditions and values; respect our neighbors and constantly seek to promote their well-being; love and enjoy life, and believe this enjoyment is increased by sharing it with family, friends and all with whom we come in contact.
To Elks, laughter is better than tears, and a kind word more powerful than a frown. The dream of a better world becomes reality when shaped by enough willing hearts and hands.
As a benevolent organization, the Elks are actively involved on the national, state, and local level with a variety of charitable and community programs. Some of these programs include Veterans Affairs, Youth Camps, Cub and Boy Scouts, Scholarships, Hoop Shoot, Children's Therapy Services, and Drug Awareness Programs to name but a few.
The Eks are here to assist and better the lives and destiny of our fellow Americans by providing help and encouragement. Our generosity is without fanfare and often without the knowledge of those we assist.
