It is the season of giving! Medford-Malden Elks Lodge and Junior Aid Association of Malden are helping 18 families this holiday season. Medford-Malden Elks Lodge donated hundreds of dollars in Target gift cards, as well as grocery store gift cards, for Junior Aid’s December Service Project that benefits several families in our community. 

“Food insecurity is a real issue for many students and families, especially during the holidays,” said Junior Aid Association of Malden President Susan Higgins. “Through this service project, we hope to help some of our most vulnerable neighbors and feed their families this season. We thank the Elks for their extremely generous donations and continued generosity to our organization.”

This year, gift cards were provided to the Forestdale School and Salemwood School communities.

For more information, please visit Junior Aid Association of Malden and Medford-Malden Elks #915 on Facebook.
