The Elks Lodge 2379 and Trevizo family begin their shopping spree!

On Saturday March 14 th Tom & Donna Schmidt, from our local Elks Lodge, met Ernie and

Alyssa Trevizo at Lowes to begin shopping for appliances for their new Veteran Gift Home.

Tom and Donna were instrumental in applying for a $2500 Elks grant to allow the Trevizos

to shop for appliances and other needs for their new home. As Ernie and Alyssa select

their items the Elks Lodge then accompanies them and completes the purchase.

Commenting on the grant Donna said, “We are so pleased to be

helping Veteran’s in our community with the very generous

grants offered through Elks National Foundation”.

As you can see from the photo on the left it was all smiles at Lowes.

Alyssa stated, "Our family is extremely grateful to have been

gifted a grant from our local Elks Lodge in Santa Clarita. Their

generous shopping spree is greatly appreciated, we can't thank

our community enough for their outpouring support and

excitement towards this new journey for our family". 

Future trips between Tom & Donna and Ernie and Alyssa will continue until the grant

funding is complete.

The Santa Clarita Veteran Services Collaborative would like to express its gratitude to Elks

Lodge 2379 for their generous support for our veterans and for assisting the Trevizos with

their new home.
