The Anual Someone Cares Package Party was a huge success.

If you have never seen the good side of caring, loving, giving people, you should come to the upcoming Someone Cares Package Party.    A movement imagined by a local Realtor, Deb Carberry Johns, who just wanted to give something back and to help some of the unfortunate people in our community.  It started with her assembling some basic necessities in her office and has since grown larger every year, well beyond her wildest dreams.   The party is now in its 7th year, and escalated to a point that it now requires a 7,000 square foot hall here a the Lawrence Elks.  


Between the huge increase of donations and the ever growing band of Deb's Elves, the program has grown into a massive production line of people of all ages that give up some time to help pack thousands of back packs to be distributed  to all the local shelters and less fortunate homeless in the area.   Deb approached the Elks hoping to make use  of some space and we happily hopped on board the party, donating the space and with a Grant from the ENF (Elks National Fund) purchased some of the gifts filling those packages.


We announced to our members that any help would be appreciated, and without pause, some of our own selfless volunteers jumped at the chance to pack these gifts of love.   It does the heart good to see people of all ages sharing this experience.    Whole families, and in my case my own children and grandchildren took part to show true compassion and love.  


So, come on down to the Lawrence Elks on Sunday, December 11th and show your love, you'll be glad you did.

What are the Organizations that Benifit from this Event.

1.  During the summer we hold a Veterans Outing and Cookout to give something back to our Forgotten Hero's and to help them feel appreciated.


2.  For the past few years we have worked with Deb Carberry to purchase Misc. goods and products and to host the "Someone Cares Package Party" that gives backpacks filed with snacks, water, hats, gloves, and personal hygene products to the needy and homeless. Please check out the Home Page of this Website and read about how and whom it helps, and check out the pictures in the Photo Gallery to see the Volunteers of all ages, in action, helping to assemble these lifesaving care packages.  I will inform everyone thru this Website when the next party happens, so you too can come down and help, it will make your heart swell with joy.


3.   The Elementry School Sneaker Grant. This is where we puchase 60 to 70 pairs of sneakers from the New Balance Company at an amazing discount to help us give away, to these less fortunate elmentry students, a nice new pair of Sneakers for school.  No one should feel ashamed of their clothing as a kid, no one.


4.  This year we are also joining forces with the Nevins Library to help fund some of their amazing programs to help kids explore the world of education and knowledge.  

Final Notes:

A lot of hard work and planning goes in to pulling off these events and I want to thank Rick Restivo for all his hard work to write these Grants, to promote our Lodge's Benevolence and coordinating these many amazing events by getting volunteers like me to climb aboard the Giving Train.  Wouldn't you like to come with us for a life changing ride?
