Mission Statement | May 2019
The Ladies Auxiliary of the Calabash Elks’ mission is to work collaboratively with the Elks in promoting integrity, and respect, while providing the emotional, spiritual, and financial support when called upon.
We support the Elks Lodge in their endeavors and support charities that promote community welfare and assist those in need. We achieve our mission by hosting many fundraisers throughout the year. Some of our annual fundraisers are card parties, raffles, and a Holiday Bazaar which is hosted by past Presidents of the Ladies Auxiliary.
The proceeds from our fundraisers feed needy families with holiday baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmas. We also support many local community programs within Brunswick County. We sponsor an annual Labor Day Picnic as well as a Christmas Party for the Assisted Living Facility in Shallotte, NC. We support the poor, the homeless, our local veterans, and our senior citizens. We also contribute donations to various organizations such as “Wounded Warriors,” “Hope Harbor,” “Hospice,” and our own Calabash Elks.
In our mission to support the Elks, we raise funds to purchase equipment, and provide for renovations to the lodge, when needed. We participate and assist the Elks with weekly and monthly events. We welcome any person 21 years or older to join the Ladies Auxiliary of the Calabash Elks Lodge ~ 2679.
