Elks Care, Elks Share
We are a volunteer organization with many opportunities to serve. We proudly support veterans and children with disabilities, and we provide college scholarships, sports programs and drug awareness education.
We would like every Elk to get involved in at least one activity, whether cooking and serving meals, visiting veterans, planning activities, or cleaning up the grounds.

Ladies of the Elks
Instituted in 1971 as The Federal Way Ladies of the Elks, we are “The Organization with a Heart.” The Ladies of the Elks is a non-profit organization.
Our Purpose: To provide charitable services to the community and to promote a spirit of cooperation and fellowship within the Lodge. We are members or the spouses or widows of members of Puyallup Elks Lodge 1450 and other interested Ladies.
Since 1930, The Elks National Foundation has helped students recognize their academic dreams. Each year, we award more than $3 million in college scholarships to at least 800 outstanding, service-minded high school seniors.
Our Elks scholar family is 17,000 strong, with 3,000 active scholars attending 65 unique U.S. institutions. Our national scholarship programs are for undergraduate study only. A student may not receive more than one Elks National Foundation scholarship award or grant in any one academic year.
Cooking and Serving
To keep Dinners going, we need Cooks, Bartenders, Servers, and Hosts.
Even one or two days a month would be a great help.
Good Samaritan Hospital Children’s Unit
Mary Bridge Good Samaritan Children’s Therapy Unit helps infants, children and adolescents who have special needs.
They are dedicated to helping each child become as functional and independent as possible.
Domestic Abuse Women’s Network (DAWN)
We provide regularly to DAWN to help women and children get a fresh start. We provide essentials such as sheets, soaps, shampoo, toothpaste, clothes, school supplies, backpacks. On every holiday, we also make sure the ladies and/or kids have a little something.
DAWN supports, empowers and shelters survivors of domestic abuse in South King County and helps to keep us all safe by educating our community to respond to and prevent violence.
