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!
