In 1947, a group of visionary volunteers responded to the community’s needs. In the face of a
polio epidemic, they acted quickly to convert a spacious residence into the Idaho State Elks
Convalescent Home for Children. The hours and resources they poured into the project are still
visible today at the Elks Rehab System.
The years have changed many aspects of our organization, including locations. What hasn’t changed,
however, is the spirit of volunteerism at the Elks Rehab System. From the Greeters Desk to Therapy Sites,
volunteers brighten every corner of our organization. Though their jobs and hours may differ, the need
for each volunteer is great. Like many other non-profit organizations, Elks Rehab System relies on the
strengths and abilities of our volunteers to achieve our mission.
The most obvious reason why we’d like you to volunteer is because we need you! But many of our
volunteers have other reasons why they donate hours to our mission. Some like making new friends.
Others, although they’ve retired, still want to put their years of career knowledge to use.
Several want the chance to learn new skills. Regardless of why they decided to volunteer, any
volunteer will tell you that they keep coming back because it feels good to help others.
