Lebanon's Elks donate to Harbor Homes veterans in Claremont
Arleen Rutledge, head of the Lebanon Elks Veterans Committee, said the donation was funded through a $2,000 Elks Lodge Gratitude Grant for the veterans of Harbor Homes.
When the home opened two years ago, the Lebanon Elks Lodge helped with a donation of bedroom furniture. Since then, the Elks members have returned to serve holiday dinners and summer barbeques to the veterans, Rutledge said, so Elks members knew the kitchen supplies that range from plates and a toaster oven to potholders and spatulas as well as patios furniture was needed.
The furniture was delivered July 24, after which there was a dinner celebration for the veterans.
Rutledge said the Elks have a long history of helping veterans, which is an important mission to her.
