The Elks National Hoop Shoot Competition is sponsored by the Elks National Foundation, which provides all the grants to local lodges in the country. “For every dollar we as a local Lodge here in Walterboro donate, we will see usually double that coming back to us in forms of grants that we apply for. This year alone we were approved for $5,500 in grants that we, as Elks, used right here in Walterboro. ($1,000 to a food bank and $500 to the 4-H Club of Colleton County to name a couple),” said Tim Anderson, Lodge Hoop Shoot chairman.
