The Portsmouth Elks Lodge 154 has donated $2,000 to STAR, Inc., Adult Workshop, a part of the Scioto County Board of Developmental Disabilities. The money will be used to purchase a new air mat used as for proprioceptive and sensory therapy and pressure relief for individuals who utilize a wheelchair or have other physical needs.


The Elks annually distributes charitable contributions on a national scale making them the most charitable organization in the United States today. In the state of Ohio the Elks major charitable project is in supporting individuals with cerebral palsy.
