“The California-Hawaii Elks Major Project, Inc., a committee of the California-Hawaii Elks Association (CHEA), pledges its commitment to addressing the unmet needs of children with disabilities throughout the states of California and Hawaii by developing a program of supporting services to aid these children at no cost to the families and without discrimination.”

Whether you help through the various support methods such as Bequests and Living Trust, regular monthly donations, filling the Purple Pig with the “A Coin A Day so They can Walk, Talk, See and Play”–there are many ways to support the children and their families who may have had little hope without the CHEA intervention.

The video below is about the beginning of the Purple Pig Major Project back in 1950.


Currently, the CHEA employs the services of therapists and pathologists
