Order of the Eastern Star Collects Stuffed Animals

Eastern Star


The members of DeKalb-Smithville #374, The Order of the Eastern Star, have collected over 400 new and gently used stuffed animals from the good neighbors of two counties in Tennessee. They were distributed to the First Responders:  The Sheriff’s, Police, EMS, and Fire Department of DeKalb and Smith Counties in Tennessee, and others.

Our hope is that they can comfort a child during difficult situations and put a smile on their faces!

The members of The Order of the Eastern Star, both men and women, are related to the Masonic Fraternity and share many community projects.
