Frederick Elks Lodge 684 recently presented a check for $2,000 to the Frederick Food Bank.
The lodge’s members agreed to include a grant they had received from the Elks National Foundation as part of the donation, which was made Aug. 2.
The donation is the lodge’s first charity donation for the year. Its members are currently planning their 59th charity ball, which will be held Nov. 17.
It will primarily focus on raising and donating money to local charities that help members of the community.
