Heart of the Community

Community Service has been an ever-growing portion of the overall Moose fraternal program ever since its inception under the name “Civic Affairs” by then-Director General Malcolm Giles in the late 1940s. The kaleidoscope of all that is Moose Community Service was organized into a “Five-Point Program” in the early 1990s, then expanded in mid-decade to the “Six-Point Program” including Youth Sports, Youth Awareness, Scouting, Spinoza Bear, Yellowstone YCC, Local Volunteerism, Senior Citizens, Food and Shelter, Mooseheart and Moosehaven. In October 2007 the Community Service Program grew yet again and included donations to the Tommy Moose program, the Safe Surfin' Program, Special Olympics, and Moose Alert.

That familiar logo has grown yet again. The Moose International Six-Point Program Logo was replaced with the Heart of the Community program logo shown below. The new program is layered with more weight given to support the core programs which are nearer the programs center.
