Written by on May 1, 2013 in News

MT. PLEASANT – The Mt. Pleasant Moose Lodge Chapter 1003 recently donated several “Tommy Moose” stuffed dolls to the Henry County Health Center Emergency Department. The donation will be used to bring comfort to children who come to HCHC’s Emergency Department. The intent of the Tommy Moose program is to help children overcome fears and anxiety during times of stress and traumatic situations. Pictured with the Tommy Moose dolls are (l-r) HCHC Emergency Department Director Vicky Oge and Ray Millard, RN, and Moose Chapter 1003 Administrator Otis Henkle and Treasurer Darrell Potter.

The Loyal Order of Moose is a fraternal and service organization founded in 1888, with nearly 800,000 men in roughly 1,800 Lodges, in all 50 states and four Canadian provinces, plus Great Britain and Bermuda. Along with other units of Moose International, the Loyal Order of Moose supports the operation of Mooseheart Child City & School , a 1,000-acre community for children and teens in need, located 40 miles west of Chicago; and Moosehaven, a 70-acre retirement community for its members near Jacksonville, FL. Additionally, Moose Lodges conduct approximately $50 million worth of community service (counting monetary donations and volunteer hours worked) annually.
