Laconia Lodge of Elks 876 made a generous $6,000 donation to Harbor Care to assist with critical dental care for vulnerable veterans living in Plymouth. Harbor Care’s Veterans FIRST program operates a 30-unit permanent housing complex at Boulder Point in Plymouth dedicated to veterans who have experienced or are at-risk of homelessness. Because dental care is not currently a benefit provided by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, nearly all of the 30 veteran residents at Boulder Point need care. Many have deferred such treatment for years. In 2021, Harbor Care launched a dental clinic within its community health center. The donation by the Lodge of Elks 876 will help provide these veterans with much needed care.
