Care Pack for Kids
The Lodge has created a wonderful program to assist young children in the Traverse City area. CARE PACK 4 KIDS is backpack food program that discreetly provides nutritious, child-friendly, easy-to-prepare food to chronically hungry children in every day backpacks to take home over the weekends and out-of-school times. This wonderful program for children nourishes the body that nourishes the mind and benefits the children by providing nutrition, eases their anxieties, reduces absenteeism, improves attention span, raises academic performance and increases self esteem. We are looking forward to growing this program and if you would like to assist, please contact the Secretary’s office.
