Kansas Masonic Foundation Supports Local Kansas Masonic Lodge With Christmas Donation

Parker, Kansas (December 11, 2023)—The Kansas Masonic Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to benefitting Kansas communities, has partnered with Parker Lodge No. 341 to donate $500 to Christmas Share, an organization supporting Parker Elementary School students during the holidays. 

Founded in 1891, Parker Lodge No. 341 is a Kansas Masonic Lodge dedicated to Freemasonry, the oldest surviving fraternal organization in the world. The lodge has nearly 100 members and supports various community organizations and events, including hosting a monthly breakfast for community members, contributing to the local Christmas Fund each year, sponsoring students at Band Camp, and recognizing student essay contest participants for their outstanding achievements. The lodge also participates annually in Parker Days by hosting a fish fry for the community.

“Christmas Share has helped families in the Parker Community for several years,” said Parker Lodge No. 341 Treasurer Tony Borum. “They see that children in need have a wonderful Christmas, which helps those families struggling to make ends meet.”

This year, to further their mission of helping community members in need, the Brothers at Parker Lodge No. 341 have teamed up with the Kansas Masonic Foundation to donate $500 to the Christmas Share program. The program supports Parker Elementary students and their siblings whose families are struggling and could use a hand-up during the holidays. This year’s funds donated will help purchase holiday gifts for students, and a formal donation announcement previously took place on December 10th at Parker Elementary School.
