LONGVIEW - The 17,000-sf former Elk’s Lodge building and the ten acres it sits on has been donated to a local ministry.
Owner Bobby Smallwood has donated the property to On Missions, which sponsors the Shade Tree Fellowship, a weekly gathering that ministers to and feeds the disadvantaged, many of whom are homeless or live in area motels.
The immediate goal for the property will be the opening of a free gym, according to Alan Johnson, one of the ministry’s leaders.
Tina Anders, a real estate agent with Century 21 The Elite Group, received the listing several months ago from developer Bobby Smallwood to sell the site of the old Elk’s Lodge building on Marshall Ave.
Anders walked through the door and said she felt another way to use the building. She began working immediately to accomplish the goal of helping others.
