Using a grant from Elks National Foundation, the Dover Elks Lodge is donating "Welcome Home Kits" to veterans transitioning from homelessness.

Holding true to its pledge, "So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent on Protective Order of Elks will never forget them," members of Dover Elks purchase items that a veteran may need to keep their new home clean and comfortable.

By working with Supportive Services for Veteran Families, items such as cookware, dishes and eating utensils, bath towels, trash cans, laundry baskets and other supplies are provided at no cost to the veterans, thereby freeing up financial resources for other necessities such as food and medicine.

For more information or to donate items, email or call 222-0132.
