Twenty-five disadvantaged children from Roadrunner Elementary School, Marana, Ariz., were escorted by Lodge volunteers for an exciting shopping spree. Each child had a $140 shopping budget to buy clothes at the Walmart, Oro Valley Marketplace. Walmart provided drinks and treats, plus donated 25 new pillows for each child. Crafty Critters made fun custom pillowcases for each child.
After shopping, the children and their escorts were brought to the Lodge for a pizza party. The Easter Bunny even visited, and each child received a fun Easter basket with candy and small toys, too.
Funds were donated by our great Lodge members, either through their very generous personal donation or the Diamond Art Picture Raffle. Our amazing, benevolent Elk Christine Sullivan donated two beautiful art pictures for the raffle.
