Roundtable - Student volunteers needed @ Center Place Fine Arts and Civic Association | Brandon | Florida | United States
 If you need Community Service hours, maybe we can help. We set aside the first day of each month to remind you that finding service hours in the Brandon area for students and volunteers is key to our mission statement. Below is a list of events in which The Community Roundtable is involved. Opportunities exist in the month in which the event is held and sometimes for several weeks beforehand. The volunteer tasks vary greatly, everything from phoning local charities to keying data online to updating excel spreadsheets  to updating content pages on our web site to taking photos at an event to working on  golf tournament to carrying a banner in a parade and everything in between. If our tasks are not of interest to you, we might be able to direct  you elsewhere.  We have a positive relationship with over 30 other charities in the Brandon area that could use you services. Please give us a call to discuss what events might align with your availability and interests. www.thecommunityroundtable.org

We currently have an Adopt-A-Vet program to benefit the veterans in the James A Haley Hospital as well as Liberty Manor in Tampa, Florida. The first Wednesday of every month a free dinner is provided to these vets in our lodge. Every Sunday in February, we transport the Veterans to Chapel. In December, we adopt families that would not have a Christmas without us.Our Ladies Organization, the B.L.O.E. (Brandon Ladies Of Elks) work hard to help support the Elks. They purchase many articles needed in the Lodge and the Lodge kitchen along with supporting many charities in the area. They give four college scholarships each year and send 10 children to the Florida Elks Camp that would not be able to attend camp without assistance. In addition they provide Food Gift Certificates to the families that Elks adopt at Christmas.
