1529 hands

On Aug. 5, Sebring Elks Lodge #1529 presented a $6,000 check to Hands for Homeless Inc., a nonprofit organization in Avon Park, Florida, whose goal is to serve healthy meals to families in need in Highlands County. In May, they served 4,735 meals, and the need keeps growing. The lodge procured both the Spotlight and Beacon grants from the Elks National Foundation to help Hands for Homeless  purchase a much-needed used truck, as their current truck has been repaired with duct tape. 

Pictured at the check presentation are Ronna Mason, PER; Jonathan Spiegel, Exalted Ruler; Jane Breylinger, executive director; Jacob Lyons, chef; Diane Morse, Loyal Knight; Ed Rivere, truck driver; Tamara Figueroa, communications coordinator; and Paul Bermudez, volunteer.
