California-Hawaii Elks (CHEA) raised over $3.5 million for the CHEMPI program in 2017-2018
The California – Hawaii Elks Association is a charitable organization serving children with disabilities since 1950.
During World War I, the Grand Lodge allocated $2 million to finance efforts to assist US soldiers. The Order organized and equipped the first two base hospitals in France, and to accommodate the wounded, the Elks built a 700-bed reconstruction hospital and gave it to the War Department in 1918. This was the first of what was to become the VA medical centers. That same year, the Order built a 72-room Community House to take care of the families visiting the 400,000 soldiers stationed at Camp Sherman, Ohio
We continue to honor and support our Veterans and our pledge-
“So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.”
