On behalf of my youth group, I extend my deepest sympathies to those who had great loss due to the storm. Our group wishes to help in the following way:
We would like to collect funds that we can then donate to the city’s shelter for any supplies that may be needed to help people here who have been displaced from their homes. Checks can be made out to Elks Antlers Lodge # 23 with a message in the memo section “For supplies for storm victims.” These checks can be mailed to:
Brigantine Elks Antlers Lodge #23
c/o Michael Mandes, President
4417 Whalerman Road Brigantine, NJ 08203
Our group is also collecting unused travel-sized items such as shampoo, toothpaste, body wash, antibacterial gel and other toiletries for those who have been displaced due to the storm.
Since our Elks Lodge has been damaged and at this point, we don’t know the true status as we are awaiting an update from the Exalted Ruler, Mr. Poole, we will make 4417 Whalerman Road in Brigantine, the drop-off point for items that are donated through our Antlers Lodge.
We will be donating these to the city’s shelter for distribution to those in need. (If no one is at home, items may be left on the porch.)
Thanks for any support you are able to provide at this time for the people of Brigantine.
On Behalf of the Brigantine Elks Antlers Lodge #23
