WE HELP CHILDREN WITH HEARING PROBLEMS

The Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children is our national charity. We fund children's hearing centres from coast to coast, including SPARC, the Saskatchewan Pediatric Auditory Rehabilitation Centre in Saskatoon.  Locally we've helped several children in the past few years, including Emily, above.


We provide scholarships at local high schools, and we provide seniors' housing on Home Street East. We built an athletic field on Caribou Street West, which is well utilized for youth sports. We provide other funding for children's needs; for example, we paid for one month's cost of a service dog for a young man with diabetes.
