2688 blue

On Aug. 2, Destin Elks Lodge #2688 donated $3,000 to the Blue Door Ministry, run by St. Andrews by the Sea Episcopal Church in Destin. The ministry provides hot lunches twice a week in coordination with other congregations in the area, sack lunches, a clothes closet, a food pantry, showers, food stamp application services, local bus passes and Harvest-House vouchers. They also run, support and operate a bike shop, which receives donations from individuals and businesses in the area who are replacing their fleets of beach bikes. The shop repairs and services hundreds of bikes each year. The bikes are given free of charge to anyone who is homeless and children in need.
