SISTERVILLE, WV – West Virginia Elks Major Project recently welcomed a $2,000 donation from Woodforest Charitable Foundation.

The Elks Major Project is a camp organized and sponsored by The West Virginia Elks Association for individuals who are mentally and/or physically challenged.   The individuals who attend camp typically do not have the opportunity to participate in this type of experience.   The special attention provided to campers as they engage in normal activities provides new exposures that often cannot be experienced at home or school.

The West Virginia Elks Major Project is committed to providing an environment where the campers can enjoy a week of learning, fun and meeting new friends. When surveyed, parents overwhelmingly stated that their child came home stronger mentally and physically, and more enhanced socially.  There is never a charge to campers or their families.

“The Woodforest Charitable Foundation and Woodforest Bank are pleased to make a donation to Elks Major Project,” expressed Kim Marling, Executive Director & Vice President of Woodforest Charitable Foundation. “All children deserve the opportunity to attend camp. Elks Major Project makes it possible for people with disabilities to bond with others and feel accepted.  This is an extremely honorable organization and we are delighted to support their work.”
