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/widowers of members of Puyallup Elks Lodge 1450 and other interested people.

This program provides in-home occupational and/or physical therapy to children birth to 21 years of age with developmental or physical disabilities at not cost to the families. Preference is given to infants and young children or those who would otherwise go without treatment due to medical fragility, transportation problems or lack of other resources in the area they live. A doctor’s prescription is required.
This program is funded entirely by donations from Elks in the State of Washington and friends of the program.
The Puyallup Ladies give a scholarship to this scholarship program once a year in the amount of $1,800.00. The women who apply have come out of an abusive environment and are trying to get a second chance in life. There is an extensive process to get a scholarship. Candidates fill out an application, write a paper which goes before a review board and they are interviewed at length. The process is really heartwarming when we see how they have turned their lives around by learning a trade in college after being accepted. The committee gives 3 to 4 scholarships out per year.
