Lodge Members Assist Chattanooga Area Food Bank

From Mark Schock - Volunteer Coordinator with the Chattanooga Are Food Bank:

					Good afternoon Angie and Ann.

						I wanted to let you know that between the three food drive locations, we raised 55,447 pounds 
						in food donations and over $74,000 in monetary donations Friday. This will go to assist a lot 
						of people in our 20 county service area and we could not have done it without the volunteer 
						assistance. Thank you all for the assistance in recruiting and please pass along our 
						appreciation to your team. What a great group of volunteers.  
						I cannot tell you how much you are appreciated.

Look Who Is In Town

				The Elks Aidmore, Inc. Dalton satellite office for Therapeutic Foster Care 
				Dalton location opened February 13, 2017 and is the third satellite office 
				to open.  It is the only satellite office north of Atlanta and will serve 
				the northwest Georgia area within 50 miles of Dalton.  Our Therapeutic Foster 
				Care program typically serves children ages 4-18 who have emotional or 
				behavioral difficulties.  Our foster parents are specially trained, 
				supervised and supported by the dedicated staff of Elks Aidmore.
				Meet Our Staff
				We welcome any members to come by to see the office and meet our staff!  
				Currently, the office is staffed with a Recruiter and 
				Business Manager/Family Consultant.  Bethany Jackson, our Recruiter, comes to us 
				with more than four years of recruitment experience with another private agency.  
				She also has a strong DFCS background, having worked for the agency for five years.  
				Our Business Manager/Family Consultant, Jaime Stafford, comes to Elks with 15 years 
				of DFCS foster care and leadership experience.  We are thrilled to have this team 
				and are looking forward to serving the needs of foster children in the northwest 
				Georgia area! 
				How can you help?
				First and foremost, help us spread the word!  We are looking for the best quality 
				foster parents around!  Forward this email to your friends and family, especially 
				anyone that you think might consider fostering a child in need.  Think of people 
				that have experience with children, personally or professionally, that are at 
				least 25 years old, have a high school diploma or equivalent, are financially 
				stable, and have a clean criminal background.  Even if they are not certain about 
				fostering, we will be happy to talk with them!   Let us know if you would like to 
				assist in handing out pamphlets about our program, or posting a flyer or yard sign 
				to help us recruit foster parents.  We will gladly accept any assistance!   Secondly, 
				there are always needs for the children placed in foster care, from essentials 
				such as toiletries, underwear, pajamas, to suitcases to carry their belongings in.  
				Those needs are individual, and difficult to predict at times.  We would love to 
				have Walmart gift cards donated to be used for these items as children enter our 
				program.  All gift cards will be logged and maintained safely and securely!
				Third, our kids’ room needs some work to be kid friendly!  The room will be used 
				for children who are awaiting foster care placement, appointments, or court.  
				We are looking to furnish with a few bean bags, a television, and some movies, 
				toys, and books.  Contact us if you’d like to help!

				Lastly, our foster parents, once approved, will need your support and prayers to 
				serve the children.  If you are interested in a volunteer opportunity, such as 
				babysitting or respite care, please let us know!
