Elks deliver ‘comfort bears’

Yucaipa Elks delivered 32 “comfort bears” to local fire stations for them to give to children in emergency or domestic violent situations. The hand-crafted bears are made by Lodge Loyal Knight Lorene Munoz. To date, she has made over 2,000 bears, which are donated or sold to Elks and their friends. All proceeds from the sales are given to Elks Major Project, which enables disabled children to receive therapy at no cost to the family and for schools to do visiion screening of young children. Shown above are firefighters with Munoz and Exalted Ruler Tom Ziech.
