"Handicapped" Children's Committee
Effingham Elks "Handicapped" Children's Committee was founded over 40 years
ago to assist families with children with special needs, under the age of 21, and
living in the Greater Effingham Area.
We have raised hundreds of thousand of dollars through our Annual Auction
and have had the privilege of helping and assisting hundreds of children in
the Greater Effingham Area.
While we normally are known for purchasing of wheelchairs, lifts, carriers,
concrete or wooden ramps, communicating devices, just to name a few, we are
always open to new ways of helping children with special needs and their families.
