Cocoa Beach Elks Club, Lodge 2387
The Cocoa Beach Elks Club have partnered with the Volunteers of America of Florida Cocoa Program for over 10 years. Twice a year the Cocoa Beach Elks Club host cookouts for the Veterans at the Volunteers of America of Florida, Cocoa Program. The Cocoa Elks Club also supply needed items for the Veterans such as toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap, dish soap, etc. For over two years the Elks have been taking homeless Veterans, who are graduating from the Volunteers of America of Florida Cocoa Program and moving into permanent housing, shopping at Dollar General under the Welcome Home Kits initiative. The shopping trip gives the Veterans a leg up and helps them to get what they need for their new home. It’s a beautiful way to enable a Veteran to have a fresh start.
On top of all of that, the Cocoa Beach Elks Club is also working on a plan to assist homeless Veterans with securing furniture. The support from the Cocoa Beach Elks Club is invaluable to both the Veterans and Volunteers of America of Florida. Volunteers of America of Florida is honored to have their partnership and to work together to positively change the lives of Veterans in need in Florida.
