Elks Lodge #1272 of Cambridge donated $1500 in response to the Dorchester General Hospital Foundation’s annual appeal to benefit Shore Behavioral Health Services. The Elks’ check was the first donation received for the DGH Foundation’s annual appeal, which will support the renovation of Shore Behavioral Health’s existing unit. The renovation, currently in process, increases the number of beds from 16 to 24 and enhances the facility’s ability to meet the needs of patients who have mental health and substance abuse issues.
