MILFORD – On March 25, 2015, Cape Henlopen Elks Lodge #2540 donated two bicycles to the Home of the Brave II Foundation. This donation was funded in part by a grant from the Elks National Foundation to Cape Henlopen Elks Lodge in order to help children and veterans in the community.

The mission of the Home of the Brave II Foundation is to reduce homelessness among female military veteran population and their children. In addition to providing transitional housing, food and security, they assist with employment, counseling services, access to healthcare, transportation and locating affordable housing. It is their goal to help veterans successfully transition into permanent housing and personal independence.

The Elks provide support for a number of youth activities, veterans and community organizations throughout the year. While most of the distributed funds are generated by the local Elks Lodge, the Grand Lodge, or the National Organization, provides funding for scholarships, community development and more. Since its beginning, the Elks National Foundation has contributed more than $406.3 million dollars towards Elk’ charitable projects nationwide.

Information about the Elks can be obtained at Cape Henlopen Elks Lodge, #2540 located at 18544 Beaver Dam Road, Lewes, by calling 645-7016 or online at www.elks.org.
