El Paso Elk's Lodge 187 

Charitable Work Is What We Do Best!

Wow, What an Extremely Busy & AMAZING Q4!

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


A few months ago, El Paso Elks Lodge 187 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, NM.) Each lodge a turn-key TTP community program, including lodge specific TP logos, posters, social posts, sample press releases, campaign evaluation forms, etc.


We encouraged participating NM lodges from July-October to collect additional toiletries from their lodge members, family, friends, and their communities to enhance the impact of their TTP program.  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 provided over $5,000 total worth of toiletries to these 4 lodges, paid 100% by our lodge.


A total of 11 NM organizations were helped and included: Sierra House Women’s & Children’s Shelter, Silver City Gospel Mission, Gospel Mission, Hot Springs High School, Deming Public School Migrant program, Deming High School, Silver Linings Homeless, the Department of Equity DPS, New Beginnings, Under His Construction and God’s Works!


We are proud to announce that 11 organizations benefited with over $23,897 in toiletries and goods that were distributed to these NM Elks lodge communities through our TTP program.

On the home front, our lodge also collected food and assembled 134 Thanksgiving boxes filled with toiletries and Thanksgiving dinner items, various other food items and $20 gift cards to purchase ham or turkeys. These food boxes and toiletries were distributed to families in need, the elderly and various veteran organizations and area school counselors, who identify kids in need.  Over $11,000 given back to our community at Thanksgiving.


In December, toiletry and toy collection drives were held at Dollar General stores. We were able to distribute toiletries and toys to 5 area schools, two nonprofit veterans’ organizations and St Vincent Clinic and Ciudad Nueva nonprofits. Over $7118 given back in December. In Q4 El Paso Elks TTP program has provided over $42,352 to the community.  


Year to date TTP provided over $169,816 back to our community.


We exceeded internal campaign goals as Q4 distribution drives provided over $42,352 back to our community. More than 9 local nonprofits and veterans groups in El Paso received toiletries items during our TTP distribution drives. Additionally, we increased ELKS awareness by assisting 4 NM Elks lodges and 11 of their community organizations by providing them with turn-key TTP program and over $23,897 in toiletries and goods.

TTP was only ONE of Several Q4 Projects!

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
