The Alabama Elks Association has made a donation to the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) to assist with the novel coronavirus COVID-19 response.

“We appreciate the Alabama Elks Association’s generous donation during this unprecedented pandemic,” Carolyn Bern, director of Governmental Affairs and Community Relations, ADPH, said. “This donation will be used for county health departments, especially those located in rural communities where drive-in screening sites are being held. We are grateful to the Elks Association members for helping us protect the citizens we serve.”

State President Matt Kornegay said, “It is an honor to be able to assist the health department in this tremendous time of need for the citizens in our state.”

ADPH Field Operations Director Ricky Elliott said, “ADPH wants to ensure that all citizens experiencing symptoms or at high risk for COVID-19 have an opportunity to access screening sites in their communities. The Alabama Elks Association has provided ADPH with much-needed support for our county health departments to conduct additional free screening sites for communities across Alabama.”
