KDCF helps Elks upgrade existing hall kitchen
In November of 2019, the Kimberley and District Community Foundation (KDCF) distributed a total of $22,600 in grants towards a variety of local sports and community organizations. One of these recipients was the Kimberley Elks Lodge, who received a total of $4000 towards the installation of a commercial kitchen.
Most of the carpentry for the new kitchen was completed by members of the Elks. Funds from the Kimberley and District Community Foundation were used for equipment and the hiring of local tradesmen, for plumbing, heating, electrical, and fire suppression.
The Elks Lodge is a familiar building in Kimberley and has been a trusted Canadian service organization for over 100 years. Many of us are familiar with the entertainment focus of the Elks, but they are a Canadian volunteer organization that supports many community projects, including children with hearing and speech difficulties. Thanks to all who support both the Elks and the KDCF.
