Our local Lodge is a vibrant organization serving Summit and the surrounding community. We support several charitable endevours especially those of children with special needs, veterans and our local youth.
We are still collecting for Veterans at Valley Brook Village and Hope for Veterans at the Lyons VA campus. Please continue to bring up clothing and non-perishable food to donate to them. There are over 8,000 homeless veterans in the State of New Jersey and Valley Brook Village is helping by supplying a roof over their heads, assistance with finding jobs, and giving them the help they need to get back on their feet.
