The LA King of Kings #25, Worshipful Master of Lake Charles Jerome Jean, will be giving away hundreds of backpacks to area kids to help get them ready for the upcoming school year. The Masonic brothas will host community events several times a year and now more than ever, parents need a helping hand.
