On Thursday night, January 28th 2022, The Arvada Elks Lodge #2278 made two donations prior to the lodge meeting. These two organizations are very meaningful and helpful to not only the Arvada community but to the Metro Denver Area.

Through various Community Table programs they strive to improve the quality of life for hungry families and children in our community. It is through unwavering support of the community that they have been able to provide food to those in need for more than three decades. Over the last 11 years the Arvada Elks #2278 have donated $30,000 to the Community Table and with that they have been able to provide over 90,000 meals.
It was with great honor to have the Arvada Elks #2278 Exalted Ruler Keith Butts present a check to the Community Table for $2,000 that came to us from the Elks National Foundation for the Spotlight Grant.
