Charitable Endeavors

COMMUNITY SUPPORT
STEP (St. Louis Park Emergency Program)

From 2016-2018, Acacia Chapter donated a total of $595 to STEP.

In February of 2012, Acacia Chapter sponsored a monetary fundraising effort for STEP with the goal of submitting the total collected to Minnesota Masonic Charities (MMC). MMC was offering, through the end of February, 2:1 matching funds for money going to food shelves. Acacia collected $2,959.21 from both members and the surrounding community via outreach efforts, and with the 2:1 match through MMC, Acacia presented a check for $8,877.63 to STEP! Massive thanks and appreciation go out to everyone who donated, both within the chapter membership itself and to the St. Louis Park community as a whole. Special thanks also go to both Beth El Synagogue and St. George’s Episcopal Church for their outstanding response to  and support of this effort!

From 2014-2018, Acacia Chapter donated a total of $723.50 to Dinner at Your Door.
