Olive Branch Lodge Community Outreach for Emergency Aid in Tulare
Olive Branch Lodge to date has provided boxes at five elementary school to support our local Emergency Aid (https://www.facebook.com/tulareemergencyaidcouncil) and their need for food this time of the season. To date our representative Robert Sutton has picked up food boxes from three schools. One of them, Kohn School on Friday had 35 boxes of food for Emergency Aid. Both the school and Emergency Aid are so appreciative of what the Masons are doing for them this time of year!
