One of the oft-repeated sayings within our Order is that “Elks Care – Elks Share”.  This month’s Elk of the Month, Christina Atkinson, is not only the embodiment of that particular sentiment but also of the Elks unwavering commitment to those who have served in our armed forces.

For some years past, Christina has been the Regional Director for Field Operations in the Southeast United States for Soldier’s Angels.  Her responsibilities include the supervision and oversight of Soldier’s Angels operational and developmental activities in eight states, including the State of Florida. and the provision of support to military veterans through various veteran’s support organizations.  Those organizations including our own Lodge, which is a designated Mobile Food Distribution site for Soldier’s Angels, where Christina can be found those Fridays at the lodge when food is being distributed to our veterans.
