El Paso Elk's Lodge 187 

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 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!!!


“Together we ARE making a difference,” in our community.

ABOUT TTP Toiletry Drives at Lodge 187

About TTP Toiletries Drive CAMPAIGN


To help celebrate Elks 150th Anniversary in 2018,  Elks Lodge 187 was excited to announce our first Annual TTP (Toiletries) Community Outreach Campaign.  We asked local schools, various businesses, and El Pasoans to support our valuable community campaign through toiletry product donations,  volunteering, and asked businesses to consider being toiletries collection points.


THE NEED:  El Paso non-profit organizations are in need of basic toiletries to meet the demand of their communities in their facilities.  The TTP campaign will address these basic needs and endeavor to fill this breach in our community.   Hygiene and health are intimately interwoven.  Research has shown that basic hygiene products (toilet paper, tooth brush/paste, body wash/soap) are essential and can change a person’s life by providing a sense of self and overall better health. The mission of the  TTP campaign is enhance the quality of life - in the El Paso community, making it a better place to live.  The campaign goal is to assist numerous local non-profit agencies throughout the year,  that assist people in need.   

WHY IS LODGE 187 DOING THIS PROJECT:  El Paso Elks was founded in 1891 and has always provided support to the El Paso Community, it's youth, veterans and people with disabilities.  We developed the annual TTP campaign in order to make a greater community impact and extend our charitable services, applied for and received the IMPACT GRANT for 2018.  The TTP campaign will allow Elks Lodge 187 to assist many local non profits, by providing the basic necessities - which in turn, will allow these organizations to better serve their communities. 

WHO WILL BENEFIT / RECEIVE TOILETRIES COLLECTED:  Local organizations serving low income families, homeless & transitional living centers, veterans organizations, family & children’s violence centers, elderly care and persons with disabilities organizations, to name a few.


​DONATIONS WE ARE SEEKING:  We are asking the El Pasoans and Elks members to donate toiletries (toilet paper, tooth paste/brushes, shampoo/conditioner, & body wash)  and we are always in need of volunteers.

​WHEN ARE THE LODGE TTP TOILETRY DRIVES:  The lodge will be hosting quarterly TTP toiletry collection & distribution drives at the Elks Lodge, on 4 designated Saturday's, per quarter, from 11-1p.


o   Sorting  and organizing toiletry items

o   Working with others to load / unload toiletry collections

o   Working with other team volunteers to assemble toiletry packaging for pick-up and delivery

o   Greeting walk-in donors and non-profit organizations who are picking up items

o   Assisting with cleaning up after each collection drive


We are inviting student volunteers that need community service hours, to help.

Students will benefit by:

  • engaging in the valuable work of helping others

  • practicing life skills such as organizing

  • problem solving/decision making

  • increased communication skills

  • strengthening teamwork/cooperation skills

  • building self confidence and sense of empowerment that comes from reaching out and helping others and practicing good citizenship by making a difference in our community

CAN TOILETRIES BE ORDERED ONLINE & SHIPPED DIRECTLY TO THE LODGE?: We've also set up an AMAZON.COM TTP WISH LIST:   To order toiletries online that will ship directly to lodge 187, please click link below to be directed to the EL PASO ELKS 187 - TTP WISHLIST ON AMAZON.COM

HOW IS TTP BEING PROMOTED TO THE COMMUNITY: The lodge is actively promoting the TTP campaign through monthly event submissions to various El Paso media channels including press releases, TTP Facebook page and paid posts, twitter along with on-air interviews and our website





Should you have questions or need further information please reach out to Cheryl Kelly 433-7335 or Tori Scott 727-0498.  We will be happy to assist any way we can.   Additionally, should you know of any businesses that might be interested in becoming a TTP Toiletries collection location, or has employee volunteer programs, please provide/share this info or provide the lodge  with the business contact information and we'll do the rest.  We have TTP flyers, posters, boxes etc. that are available. We also ask every Elks Lodge member share with this information with their friends and family and certainly share with businesses visited frequently.
