On June 3, the Veterans Committee of Zephyrhills Elks Lodge #2731 donated toys to the lodge’s Feed the Kids program, the first day of this year’s program. The committee will continue to donate toys each Monday until the program is complete in August. The Feed the Kids program is in its fourth year at the lodge. Children and caretakers can visit the lodge for lunch Monday through Friday. The lodge also provides games for the children. Members also volunteer to read and help the kids with their reading. They have a library from which the kids can take books home. In the program’s first year, 500 were fed. Last year, the total was over 4,000, and this year’s goal is 5,000.
