Elks present grant to Youth Consultation Services

Through the Elks National Foundation, this evening the Hackensack Elks presented a $600 grant to the Youth Consultation Services to help with their efforts to restore their Washington School, which was flooded in Hurricane Sandy.  The Elks have hosted the children of YCS for events in the past and look forward to continuing to partner with this fantastic, local, youth foundation in the future.
