Charity is the backbone of Freemasonry. This is especially true in the state of Pennsylvania, where the Grand Lodge of PA maintains 5 Masonic Villages…… retirement communities for masons and their families with first-class amenities, nursing services, entertainment and more.
But that’s far from all we do…. This is just a partial list of the many charities that we support:
Help For Our Heroes allows us to show our support for the men and women of the US Military and their families through such services as financial assistance, baby showers for military mothers-to-be, and calling cards for PA soldiers deployed overseas.
Fisher House Foundation builds homes where military and veterans families can stay free of charge when a loved one is in the hospital.
The PA Masonic Youth Foundation provides programs and resources for young people across the Commonwealth through leadership, education, and mentoring.
Our Masonic Children’s Home in Elizabethtown, PA also serves as a homelike environment for children being raised by aging grandparents, or those who may not have the economic security and support that they need for healthy growth and development.
