North Attleborough Elks supports 10 families through Holiday Cheer program

The North Attleborough Elks Lodge’s Holiday Cheer Committee has sponsored 10 families during the Christmas season. Three families, which included 10 children, were given all the gifts on their wish lists. A Giving Tree was set up in the lodge with gift tags detailing their Christmas Wishes. Every tag was taken by a Lodge Member. The families were also given gift cards so they could get whatever else they needed. These three families were also given a big bag of food with everything they would need for their Christmas dinner.

In addition, the lodge provided an additional five families with a big bag of food. Two families were added at the last minute and were provided with gift cards to get what they needed, whether it was gifts or food. All of this was made possible by the generosity of lodge members.
