On July 30, St. Petersburg Elks were busy delivering their Christmas-in-July gifts to 19 children at Sallie House. Head elf and Exalted Ruler, Dawn Elaine Lieber, received a Christmas wish list from the kids that she was thrilled to fulfill. At a value of $400, the children were each given an outfit, undergarments, scented hand sanitizer, body lotion and body spray. Sallie House is a safe haven for children ages infant to 17 who have been removed from their home because of abuse, neglect or abandonment.
