Lodge Donates to Corky’s Cupboard

Gulf Beach Lodge No. 291 donated $200 worth of personal hygiene items to the Masonic Home ‘Corky’s Cupboard’.
In 1990, Coreen “Corky” Brownell, a member of the Masonic Home Service Guild, came up with the idea to hand out sundry items and health and beauty aids to residents for no charge. She issued a request to Masonic Lodges and Chapters. Then donations started coming in from across the state.
Today, residents enjoy stopping by Corky’s Cupboard twice a week to pick up health and beauty aids they might be out of and spend a few minutes socializing. The shop is stocked with in-kind donations and run by volunteers, so there’s no charge for these items that residents might need between their shopping trips.
