Charitable Work Is What We Do Best!

JOINING FORCES with New Mexico Lodges!

“Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much” – Helen Keller.


This month was special and an amazing way to close out Q3.  As you may or may not know, El Paso Elks Lodge 187 TTP Outreach program provides needed toiletry items (toilet paper, shampoo/conditioner/ body soap, toothbrush and toothpaste) to local non-profits, poor schools, veterans etc. These basic items are proven to provide self-dignity and self-worth and promotes overall well-being and good health. This year, to date, we’ve provided over $161,690 in toiletries and items, to the El Paso community, with this program alone!


We’ve worked extremely hard over the past five years to make this campaign successful and wanted to expand the program, to assist “more” people - while “collaborating together” with our fellow lodges!


A few months ago, we extended an invite to all New Mexico Elks lodges to host their own TTP campaign, fully funded by El Paso Elks lodge.  Four NM Elks lodges participated (Albuquerque, Deming, Elephant Butte and Silver City.) We provided each lodge a turn-key TTP community program, including lodge specific TTP logos, posters, social posts, sample press releases and campaign evaluation forms.  We also were available for any questions along the way.


We encouraged participating NM lodges from July-September to collect additional toiletries from their lodge members, family, friends, and their communities to enhance the impact of their TTP program.


Then, at the end of September, each  participating NM lodge received a “TTP Toiletries” Amazon package which included toilet paper, shampoo,conditioner, body soap, toothbrush and toothpaste.  To give you an idea, most of these lodges received 8 or more cases of TP, plus several cases of shampoo, conditioner, body soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste.


We are eagerly waiting for these lodges to wrap up their distribution drives and can’t wait to congratulate each of them. Several NM local organizations were helped including local veterans groups, local non profits and more.  We will provide more details and pictures next month.  “Thank You” to each of the NM lodges who participated and for all your extra efforts to help your communities! 💜  We are so proud to be part of it and hope the impact in your communities was grand!!!


2022 Q3 TTP Campaign

What a great month!! El Paso Elks lodge #187 celebrated 🎉 131 years of serving the El Paso community, by giving back!!!


We are proud to announce that our August TTP collection and distribution drive is complete and we provided over $14,000 back to our community.  More than 15 local nonprofits and veterans groups received toiletries items during our TTP distribution drive!  Way to go team 187!! 👏💜 


Also we’re thankful to NMEA President Hitchcock for his visit!  He was able to experience first-hand  the TTP campaign and our lodge team members hard at work and was touched by all the testimonials given by several non profits!  The day was ended with a great 131st Anniversary Dinner Celebration at the lodge!!

Who are the Elks?

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the USA has joined forces with Donate Life America to increase donations of organs, eyes and life-saving tissue. The Grand Lodge Fraternal Committee is asking all Elks to join the Organ Donor Program to make these life-saving donations.


Even though 95% of Americans are in favor of being a donor, only 54% of the U.S. adult population, are registered organ, eye and tissue donors. Nationally, nearly 33,600 patients began new lives in 2016 thanks to organ transplants. 683,000 have taken place since 1988. Every year 1.5 million tissue transplants are performed. 48,000 patients have their sight restored through corneal transplants each year and 1,500,000 since 1961! 

We Elks Members can help close the gap! For more information on the importance of donation and how to become a registered donor in your state, log on to
