Distribution of food for our Christmas Basket Project begins

Every year members of Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge #2477 team up to make our Christmas Basket Program a success.  These “Baskets” are actually boxes filled with food for families in need.  The number of boxes range from two to as many as seven.  The boxes are filled with enough food for one week and a holiday meal.  Deliveries to those with children also include gifts wrapped by our Elks Ladies.  The deliveries include fresh fruit, eggs, milk, bread, canned fruit and vegetables, cereal and much more.  The holiday meal is typically a turkey, all of which are donated by members of our lodge.  Smaller households receive a holiday ham.
This is our local charity project and it continues to be a welcomed success.  Over the past several years we have been assisted by the United Parcel Service (UPS) for larger deliveries to Senior Concerns.  The contribution by UPS has made providing for this senior community more efficient and streamlined.  We thank them for their support.
Below are pictures highlighting the preparation of food items delivered to the lodge.

One of the most successful Christmas Tree Lot seasons has caused the lot to close ahead of schedule (we kinda ran out of trees).  Closing out the season is our resident elf Janey and a few die hard Elks.
