San Luis Obispo
The Masons of King David’s Masonic Lodge, No. 209, in San Luis Obispo recently donated $2,000 to the Grizzly Youth Academy program located at Camp San Luis Obispo. This presentation was part of the spring 2018 philanthropy program of the lodge, which totaled more than $22,000.
These funds will be used as a scholarship to support at-risk youth enrolled in the program operated by the California Army National Guard.
King David’s Lodge is involved in supporting a variety of nonprofit philanthropic efforts, both locally and statewide. In addition, the lodge awards more than $20,000 annually in scholarships to local high school seniors.

Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center and Twin Cities Community Hospital donated more than 6,000 servings of cereal and $3,200 to the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County, a member of the Feeding America network, during its Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive in June.
The donations collected will help provide a healthy breakfast to local children and adults struggling with hunger. Good nutrition is essential to good health, and summer is a particularly tough time for many food-insecure families because children can’t rely on schools for nutritious meals, putting an added burden on these families.
