Massapequa Elks Lodge 2162 sponsored a troop of US Soldiers stationed at a base in Germany. There are 153 men/women part of this regime.
We sent them food/candy that is not available in Europe, in the hopes of giving them a taste of "Home" for the holidays. In addition, local Elementary School children wrote notes of gratitude, appreciation and support to each soldier.
Lastly, each package included a handmade star Christmas ornament made by local school children as well. This will be an ongoing relationship between the Massapequa Elks Lodge and this Troop.
If you would like to donate, please send your donation to the Lodge, marked on the check or envelope "Military Gift Fund." Thank you.
