|Heart of Community Committee|
Community Service provides the avenue for Fraternal Units to show they are an asset to their own local communities. In the 1940s, then-Supreme Secretary Malcolm Giles initiated the launch of a new department called “Civic Affairs” with the firm belief that only the home, the church, and the school have the God-given right to reside in the community. Giles thought all 33 other businesses and organizations must prove their value by giving back to the communities that support them. Today, Moose International has a Community Service Program (initiative) that reminds every Fraternal Unit to formulate an active Moose Heart of the Community Committee to provide for those in need in their respective communities.
Lodge involvement in the surrounding community not only enhances the image of the Fraternal Unit, but also provides the Moose volunteer an avenue for improving their community. As the Officers and chairmen begin their year with immense enthusiasm and renewed spirit, they are reminded to keep the welfare of surrounding communities at the front of their many programs.
It should be noted that the number of resources available to the Moose Heart of the Community Chairman is equal to the number of active members. These resources are called Volunteers – the most integral asset in "Providing Today for a Better Tomorrow.”
