Well, the Mid-Year Conference in Costa Mesa just wrapped up and boy what a weekend!


Tommy Moose was very busy handing out 237 Backpacks stuffed with school supplies and Tommy and Rosie Moose for the students at the Hope School in Buena Park. We also delivered 17 cases of Tommy Moose with coloring books and crayons to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Scott Hart, Christie Hart, and Joe Henderson were taken to Seacrest Studios and talked about the Moose and the Tommy Moose program which was broadcast to every room in the hospital. This was an awesome way to share with everyone without risking any of the patients since they are still only allowing family in to visit. Ronald McDonald House of Orange County received $1,000 from the California Nevada Moose Association and $1,240 in gift cards plus food and cleaning supplies. The Costa Mesa and City of Orange Fire departments were given 100 blankets and 20 cases of Tommy Moose.


We could not have done all of this without YOU! Your generosity is unbelievable! The Heart of the Community would like to give you All a BIG Hug and Thank you for what you do!


We would also like to thank Scott, Christie and Josh Hart and everyone who helped with stuffing the backpacks. Everyone worked hard getting everything ready. Please enjoy the photos.

A Program Helping Children, Seniors And Making Our Communities A Better Place To Live!

The Moose Community Service Program of today and for the century challenges people to become volunteers through membership in the Moose. It calls for capable and inspired leadership and for a generous giving of thought, effort and time according to the Moose Six-Point Community Service Program. Counting hours worked, miles driven and dollars donated, the Moose contribute $70 – $80 million worth of service every year to communities throughout the U.S., Canada and Great Britain. Community Service has been an ever-growing portion of the overall Moose fraternal program ever since its inception under the name Civic Affairs by then Director General Malcolm Giles in the late 1940’s

The kaleidoscope of all that is Community Service was organized into a Five-Point Program in the early 1990’s, then expanded in the mid-dacade to the Six-Point Program with its familiar logo above.

Can teenagers persuade younger children to make the right choices in life? Yes say the teens and the adults who work together in the Moose Youth Awareness Program. For more than a decade, the Moose has organized high-school-age leaders into a highly effective speaker’s bureau to persuade preschool and elementary-age youngsters against drug use. The program, founded in 1986, has now expanded to bring awareness to 4-to-9 year olds on other subjects such as child abuse, gangs and other elements that have an adverse effect on the youth of today. Women of the Moose are actively participating in many community projects.

Tommy Moose was developed to continue the initial concept of providing a plush Moose as a Community Service Program. Since 2002, the men and women of the Moose have donated more than 75,000 TOMMY MOOSE plush dolls to police, fire and ambulance units all across America.
With two or three Tommy’s always on hand in their vehicles, public safety workers have a way to help soothe and calm small children in moments of trauma and crisis.
