At a hotel in Trenton this committee was founded with the purpose of establishing such activities that would bring light , sunshine and happiness into the lives and hearts of the afflicted.

     Many years have passed since the birth of this movement, "helping handicapped children to help themselves"which was inaugurated by the Elks of the State of New Jersey. We as successors of our founders have carried on this great humanitarian work. We try to direct the lives of handicapped children away from the drab existence of being left out, which had been their lot, and into the channels where love, happiness, and contentment are found.

     The Elks of New Jersey are dedicated to the objectives of service as described in our slogan, "helping handicapped children to help themselves," and as stated in our articles of incorporation.

     Each year, our lodge host many different events for our Special Children. We have dances, take them to shows, and send to our State Project Camp Moore. All of these programs are aimed to help these children live life and have fun. The miles of smiles that come from these children is amazing to see. We also hold a charity ball for a child each year to help the family of a child with special needs.
