East Providence Elks Lodge 2337 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the U.S.A. The Premier Charitable and Patriotic Organization in the Nation!


The East Providence Lodge works with the Elks National Foundation by Earning a Gratitude Grant. The goal for this grant is set by the Grand Exalted Ruler. The ENF team members at the lodge met this goal and this grant was awarded to the lodge. Giving back to the community, this grant will be used to support the following;
The Bread Of Life Food Pantry is located at Newman Congregational Church. The pantry is a collaborative ecumenical effort of six East Providence churches. In a typical month, 200 households receive assistance, from East Providence and surrounding communities.
We Share Hope, a Rhode Island-based food rescuer, whose role is to locate, gather, and distribute food and non-food items to groups that feed the poor, distressed, and the underprivileged. The homeless, children living in poverty, the elderly, disabled, underemployed and the working poor are their top priorities.
Operation Stand Down Rhode Island. Serving Veterans In Need is their only priority! Services offered include employment and training, housing, food and clothing. Operation "Stand Down Weekend" is an outreach event. Each September, homeless and low-income veterans camp out in a military-style encampment and receive services ranging from housing, legal and employment assistance, to medical and dental care, food, clothing, and much more. "As Long As There Are Veterans They Will Never Be Forgotten."
We from the East Providence Elks Lodge are proud to support these worthwhile projects, thanks to its members of the ENF Team and the Elks National Foundation. If you would like to become a member of the lodge at 60 Berkeley St. East Providence, RI 02914, please call 401 433 8565, or send an email to bpoe2337secretary@yahoo.com.
