The Tucson East #2532 Elks Lodge has been an active supporter of our schools and students for many years. During the holiday season of 2016-2017, the Elks treated Steele Elementary families with turkey dinners and took more than 70 students on a shopping spree. Each child was paired with an Elk and got $100 to spend!
The Elks continually look for ways to have an impact on our children. In 2016, they made a $1,000 donation to Soleng Tom Elementary to promote and upgrade their computers for Reading A to Z for KIDS. They also support teachers with donations and present students with scholarships ranging from $1,200 to $3,000.
What else? They distribute 500 dictionaries to Tucson Unified schools each year.
It's not a stretch to say that Tucson East #2532 Elks Lodge is the definition of a Community Partner. We are honored to name them a part of #TeamTUSD.
