Charitable Works

  • “ and the greatest of these is Charity ”

Cerrillos Lodge charitable donations

Cerrillos Lodge No. 19 performs a tremendous amount of charity work, especially for a lodge of our size. For example, under the leadership of Worshipful Brother LV West, in 2014 Cerrillos Lodge donated $10,000 in charity contributions to local, national, and international charity organizations. We also present scholarship awards, sponsor Cub Scout packs and youth baseball teams, and volunteer our time at homeless shelter dinners. Charity is one of the basic principles of Freemasonry and the brethren of Cerrillos Lodge are always quick to aid an individual, or organization, in need.
