Erie Elks Help Grant Two Wishes

Posted: Updated:

Two families are celebrating the fact that their children's wishes will be granted.

On Thursday night, Erie Elks Lodge presented the Make-A-Wish Foundation with a check for over $7,000. That check was enough to fund two families wishes.

Right now, it's looking like both families will be heading to Disney World thanks to the support of the Erie Elks.

"We do a lot of community service here and one of them is this," said Kathleen Kern of the Erie Elks Lodge. "We're so proud because Elks care, Elks share."

"Their mission ties in so closely with what we do because they help children with their Elks Home Nurses and the wishes they are funding are two of the children that the Elks Home Nurses works with," said Jan Stork, of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Stork said this partnership with the Erie Elks is a new one for the foundation.
