Masonic Lodges Join Forces to Aid School Kids

Members of the Memphis Masonic Lodge #16 and the Greensbuirg Masonic Lodge #414 recently joined forces in the “Creating a Partnership” program to provide a donation to the Scotland County R-I Elementary School. The gift will help the district provide everyday necessity items for the children to help make their school days better.

The Masonic Lodge provided the monetary gift to help purchase items ranging from backpacks, hats, and coats, to pencils, notebooks and erasers. Participating schools partner with their local lodges, creating a list of needed items. Funding is provided by the local lodge, with additional funding from the Masonic Home of Missouri.

The financial donation allows the school to purchase the needed items and to distribute the needed aid to students privately.
