Elks lodge given $3,500 grant

The Escondido Elks Lodge has recently received a $3,500 Beacon Grant from the Elks National Foundation.
This is the seventh consecutive year the Elks Lodge has received this grant to support disabled veterans from the La Jolla Veterans Administration Hospital. This year the funds will be used to provide equine therapy for veterans at the Rockin’ L&D Ranch in Escondido.
This program offers horsemanship and wellness for those with PTSD, physical injuries, or combat trauma. Veterans are hands on with horses from groundwork to riding and this gives them a new mission where they can recuperate, recreate, and reintegrate into their communities.
