Do You Know What Elks Do:
The Elks National Foundation provides more than $3.64 million in college scholarships each year through its three scholarship programs.
In each of the 172 VA Medical Centers nationwide there is an Elk committee at work. Since 1917, hundreds of thousands of Elks and their families have given generously of their time, energy and resources so that the lives of our ill and aging veterans will be enhanced.
Last year the Elks provided contributions for charitable works of cash, non-cash, hours worked and miles traveled in the amount of $38,900,931 in California-Hawaii and over $306,662,378 nationally
The California Hawaii Elks Preschool Vision Screening Program screens over 50,000 children per year. It is the goal of the program to significantly decrease the number of children at risk for amblyopia ("lazy eye") and other vision problems.
The Elks physical therapists evaluate and treat children with a wide range of disabilities as they travel from home to home.
Our highly trained Elks Major Project speech-language pathologists can diagnose a variety of communication disorders and coordinate a home program of therapy with the parent.
Our occupational therapists, working with the parents, teach our children the basics from feeding and dressing skills to dealing with problems in sensory integration.
