Marion Elks help out Kentucky tornado victims

  • Members of the Marion Elks #800 have spent a busy week helping out victims of the Kentucky tornadoes last week. The Marion Lodge began collecting items at the request of the lodge in Marshall County. Members collected items including food, paper and cleaning supplies, and hygiene products, as well as propane grills, stoves, cylinders, and even generators. "We had so many organizations bring stuff to load or had us pick up," said Michelle Rivers Hamilton. "It was definitely a community-wide effort." Item donations are now on hold but the Elks members are still collecting Christmas gifts for the victims. Those must be new toys or gifts, unwrapped, and must be for preteen and teenage children.
