Raising money is not an easy job anytime but trying to do so during a pandemic is a monumental task. It is a task the Salvation Army is undertaking and can use some assistance as well. That assistance came from the Elks Lodge #100 of Quincy when they decided to help fund the Salvation Army’s voucher program.

The local Elks Lodge presented a check to the Salvation Army for $2,500. Knowing the need to help community members is so great is what spurred Quincy Elks Lodge #100 to request an Elks National Foundation grant which they received.

Giving to The Salvation Army isn’t new for Quincy Elks Lodge #100 as they have partnered with The Salvation Army in the past to provide food donations.

Regional Social Services Director Heidi Welty stated, “We have consistent requests for persons in need of clothing, housewares, and furniture. This donation of $2500 will help so many in our community. I can’t thank The Elks enough for their generosity and kindness. We are beyond blessed to have such a wonderful organization in our community.”
