Kansas Masonic Foundation Supports Local Kansas Masonic Lodge With Community Benefit Walk

Hoxie, Kansas (May 19, 2023)—The Kansas Masonic Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to benefitting Kansas communities, has partnered with Hoxie Lodge No. 348 to donate $2,000 to the Sheridan County Benefit Walk, a fundraising organization helping Sheridan County individuals and families struggling with life-altering medical conditions. 

Founded in 1893, Hoxie Lodge No. 348 is a Kansas Masonic lodge dedicated to Freemasonry, the oldest surviving fraternal organization in the world. The lodge has 45 members and supports the community through acts of service, including operating a booth at the Community Home Carnival, helping pick up trash along the highway, consistently donating to community food banks, providing scholarships to local high school students, contributing to the Hoxie Ministerial Alliance Food Bank, and donating to the Sheridan County Benefit Walk. 

“Our Brothers at Hoxie Lodge No. 348 have donated to the Sheridan County Benefit Walk for the past 10 to 15 years,” said Hoxie Lodge No. 348 Treasurer Gary Shipley. “The organization helps raise money to assist people in the local community with medical assistance and is entirely volunteer-run.”

To continue their mission of helping give a better life to individuals and families within the community, the Brothers at Hoxie Lodge No. 348 have teamed up with the Kansas Masonic Foundation to provide a monetary donation of $2,000 to the Sheridan County Benefit Walk. The Sheridan County Benefit Walk is an annual event that helps raise money for local families who need assistance with medical bills or travel within the county and benefits individuals and families struggling with life-altering medical conditions. Any person experiencing hardship due to a lack of finances for medications or people experiencing catastrophic situations may receive assistance. The funds raised by the lodge, combined with matching funds from the Kansas Masonic Foundation, will be presented at the Sheridan County Benefit Walk on June 9, 2023, at the Sheridan County 4-H Building.
