Day of Comfort 2023

Day of Comfort 2023

This summer our members voted to raise money and collect donations to give Thanksgiving dinner and nearly a week’s worth of groceries to six families for needy Middle School Families. We have done this as our “Day of Comfort” Charity each year for the last several years.

This year several local Masonic Lodges and Eastern Star Chapters donated money to help our members meet their goals. We also received several individual donations of food.

Our members spent last Wednesday, Nov. 15th finalizing our service project.

We started by divvying up the donated food and pre-purchased turkeys onto 6 tables

Then we went to Walmart and spent an additional $500 on food and laundry baskets for six families,

Our members picked a menu for Thanksgiving Dinner (Turkey and Ham, Green bean casserole ingredients, cranberry sauce, boxed mashed potatoes, stuffing, and a pie.)

They then added a 5 lb bag of potatoes, and bags of onions, apples, and oranges. Also peanut butter and jelly, cereal, more canned vegetables, macaroni and cheese, beans and rice.

Jace, Jacob, Kayden, Ryon, Airon and Zander with six laundry baskets full of food we donated to families through a Deltona Middle School.

A massive thank you how’s out to everyone who helped make this a success.

A bit of Christmas Cheer

Tonight Dad Bidoli, Sion K. and Connor G. met at Landmark lodge and collected all of the food we have gathered along with the Brothers of Landmark Lodge. They then went shopping with cash donations and $50 from our Almoner’s fund to purchase staples and Christmas Dinner for a family from a local high school.

Tomorrow Mom Tingler will drop the food off at the school for the family to enjoy.

We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Blessings of the New Year.
