East Providence Elks in Action!
A $1,200 grant has been awarded to East Providence Elks Lodge # 2337. The Freedom Grant will be used in conjunction with Riverside Boy Scouts Troop #55 to sew wheelchair bags and fill them with necessities for the veterans at the Bristol Veterans' Home. In February of 2017 a “sewing party” will be had to cut, pin and sew the wheelchair bags. In March of 2017 a luncheon will be held at the Veterans' Home to hand out the bags and spend time with the residents.
