Many other organisations received donations and the variety of charity donations was extremely varied across the board. The Order of The Eastern Star members devotes many hours of work and dedication to help raise these funds for very worthy causes and others less fortunate in the communities. They do not look for and sometimes do not receive recognition for all this, however it is part of the core of the Order of the Eastern Star and done with Charity and Love of their fellow man.
