On the evening of Thursday, December 19, 2019, members of the Lacey Elks Lodge made donations to both the Lacey Food Bank and the Xodus Recovery Community Center (XRCC). The donations took place inside Xodus, located at 203 Lacey Road in Forked River (next door to the Lacey United Methodist Church). The Elks Lodge donated a check in the amount of $2000 for the Xodus Recovery Community Center, and another check to the Lacey Food Bank. Recently, on December 7, 2019, the Lacey Elks Lodge made donations to the Lacey Police Department and our Local Emergency Services. The donation to the police department consisted of a new Defibrillator.
The Lacey Elks Lodge continues to be a strong supporter, not just for Xodus, but for the police department and emergency services. Once again I would like to thank the Lacey Elks Lodge for their continued support and dedication to the emergency services. It is so much appreciated.
The Xodus Recovery Community Center opened their doors in December 2018. They offer services including, but not limited to, peer recovery support, Narcan training, and various workshops. The workshops include, but are not limited to, assistance with new employment and college enrollment.
The Lacey Food Bank is located at 102 Station Drive in Forked River. They do so much for our community, including, but not limited to, helping to feed over 213 families and providing emergency food for those in need. In addition, the Lacey Food Bank kids program provides clothes and toys to the children in the program during the Holiday season.
I would like to thank the Lacey Food Bank and the Xodus Recovery Community Center for everything they do for our community.
