Eagles give back to Cedar Key

-A A +A


Cedar Key Eagles are living up to the motto, People Helping People.

The Cedar Key Food Pantry was the well deserved recipient of Eagle generosity in January, with the Eagles donating peanut butter.

When told of the shortage of peanut butter at the Pantry, individual Eagles donated $135, enabling many jars of peanut butter to be purchased, and the Aerie complimented the purchase by donating an additional $100, bringing the total to $235 for peanut butter.

One Eagle was quoted as saying, “No child should go without peanut butter!”.  While we can’t guarantee that, we can try to make the quintessential after school snack available for as many as possible.

Then, the Fraternal Order of Eagles turned a “chili” day into a heart warming event.

Another Way Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Center will receive a much deserved donation. Contestants, members and guests who attended this year’s Annual Chili Cook Off were true to the Eagles motto of: People Helping People.

Not to be outdone by the generous donations, the winners also donated their prize money for such a worthy cause. This year, more than ever, the continued goal of the Cedar Key Eagles is to provide needed aid to our local and national charities.
