THE MOOSE AND COMMUNITY SERVICE

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.

Community Service Can Make Your Lodge & Chapter Stand Out As A Community Leader!.

For more than a century, the Moose fraternity has had concern for the welfare of children at its core. So it should come as no surprise that the fraternity that cares enough about children to make Mooseheart a reality enters the 21st century with protection of children who use the Internet as a key concern.

As of the beginning of 2008, the Moose have entered into a partnership with the Safe Surfin’ USA Foundation, a Virginia-based organization which has been a leader in attempts to keep the Internet a safe place for children to explore.

NEW COMMUNITY SERVICE PROGRAM
MOOSE ALERT CENTERS

The Moose Alert Center Community Service program outlines a system for utilizing Moose facilities and members during times of disaster, whether they are natural or man-made, or when a child is missing. Creation of the Moose Alert network would provide local law enforcement and public safety personnel with a potentially vital resource in dealing with a crisis situation.

This establishes another role for the Lodge to play in the community and provides police, fire and EMS with manpower and equipment to assist in emergency situations. Events like Hurricane Katrina and September 11, 2001 have proven that our citizens have the ability to come together in times of crisis and devote their time and talents to handle adverse circumstances. Moose Alert will allow our resources to be organized and prepared to act at a moment’s notice in response to any emergency.
