Cape Henlopen Elks support local churches and community

March 18, 2023

As in years past, Cape Henlopen Elks Lodge 2540 of Lewes seeks and receives monies from the Elks National Foundation, the charitable arm of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, to support worthy causes in and around the local community.

Cape Henlopen Elks recently donated $4,000 to Wesley United Methodist Church in Georgetown for its food pantry and $3,000 to Epworth United Methodist Church in Rehoboth Beach for its food ministry.

After making a request to the Elks National Foundation, Cape Henlopen Elks secured a grant of $2,000 for Wesley United Methodist Church, and the local lodge matched those funds to increase the total donation to $4,000.

The donations were  presented Feb. 15 prior to the lodge's bimonthly meeting.
