Yorktown Elks Club Give $2,000 Grant to Seniors

By residents making a donation, Elk Club members can provide services to Yorktown seniors.

Yorktown seniors are benefiting from a recent $2,000 grant donation by the Yorktown Elks Club. 

With the help of the Elks members, three new insulated containers were replaced for the home bound seniors, Mary De Silva said. These containers are insulated and along with hot packs, they keep the meals up to temperature code.

Emergency meals were also purchased and will be delivered to the home-bound seniors for use during the winter months.

"These meals will have a note on them saying that the Yorktown Elks are responsible for them receiving this emergency package," De Silva said.

By making a donation, ELK Club members can provide such services to the residents.

You wont find me in the kitchen too often because I burn salad. Thanks to the great crew at the Nutrition Center for preparing the meals we were serving.
