Holiday for the Needy Families
Del Mar Lodge 1350 will host its Annual Christmas Party for Needy Families on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at the Lodge Building located at 1305 Woodlawn Dr., Corpus Christi, TX 78412-4022. Four family in need identified by the Principals of Meadowbrook Elementary School and Haas Middle School will receive their presents from Santa and Mrs. Claus.
On Thursday, December 6th the families Shopped with A Mason at the Walmart Super Center on Saratoga Blvd. who has donated $250 towards the purchases. We appreciate Walmart's continuing commitment to supporting this program each year. Each family was given a budget. The kids get to buy Christmas gifts for their parents and the parents get to spend on their children. Masons and Ladies from Del Mar Lodge 1350 along with staff from the two-school assisted with the shopping. The presents were brought back to Del Mar Lodge where the Ladies and Masons will wrap them in preparation for the Christmas Party. Before leaving, Subway provided three large sandwich trays to feed the families and helpers. We appreciate Subway Development STX for their generosity.
On Wednesday, December 12, Lodge members, their ladies and school officials will be shopping at HEB Plus on Saratoga for holiday dinner items. Through the generosity of HEB Community Programs, we will be using a $320 grant from HEB to purchase two (2) complete holiday meals for each of the four families. There will be a turkey, ham, all the sides, dessert and other food items so that these families will have both a complete Christmas and New Year Holiday Meal. BIG shout-out to HEB.
This program is made possible by donations from members of the Lodge, Masons from other organizations, individuals and businesses. See our business sponsors in the sidebar. If you would like to contribute to this cause, please contact Del Mar Lodge at firstname.lastname@example.org .
