Alcovy Shrine Club makes donation
Placeholder Image

The Alcovy Shrine Club, an organization that helps children who have special orthopedic conditions, spinal cord injuries, burns and cleft palette and lip conditions at no charge, recently donated a special walker to Wesley Smith, 3, of Oxford, to help him in strengthening his legs and to help him to walk.

When you see Shriners collecting money and in parades, they are working so children can have the opportunity to walk and live a normal life without putting a financial burden on the family. Shriners love seeing a smile on a child’s face when they do something to help.

Tim Walden of the Alcovy club asks that you call him at (770) 787-0511 or visit if you know of a child in need of help. The Alcovy Shrine Club is located in downtown Covington in the Masonic hall building.
