Elks donate apples

Elks across the province co-ordinated the delivery and distribution of Okanagan apples to their communities

Elks’ Richard Bergeron

For the first time, Quesnel Elks are donating 1,000 pounds of apples to the schools in the district and local shelters including Salvation Army Food Bank, Seasons House, Grace Young Centre and Quesnel Day Program. The local lodge hopes to make it an annual event as other lodges in the region have done. Elks Lodges in Prince George, McBride, MacKenzie, Williams Lake, Vanderhoof, Burns Lake and Quesnel have partnered with Osoyoos Elks and two orchards to be able to provide this service. The orchards supply the fruit and then seven of the Elks Lodges in this region have it transported to Prince George where it is distributed to each lodge and the members donate the fruit to their respective community groups.
