Welcome to the Website for

Charity Work & Donations

Matthews Lodge is first and foremost a Non-Profit Charity Organization. It is true that Masons are the oldest living fraternity of like-minded individuals who get together at regular functions with our “Brothers” and their families. We have a great time in doing so, and we better ourselves through regular interaction with the members of our lodge and through the customs, rules, and regulations of Masonry.

It is also true that our first priority is to the community and to charity. This comes as a suprise to most outsiders. While our fellow Brothers, the Shriners (another Masonic Organization) have done an excellent job of letting the public know of the outstanding work they do with the
Shriners Children’s Hospitals . The Masons of NC have yet to accomplish the Shriner’s scale of publicity with their charitable organization which is a Great and Noble cause as well and that is supporting the children of The Masonic Home for Children at Oxford. The Masonic Home for Children at Oxford (or MHCO) is located in Oxford NC, which is located between Durham and Henderson, right off of I-85.

MHCO exists for one purpose — to help children who need a stable, caring and loving home. The mission of MHCO is fulfilled through the support of charitable giving. It is also backed by almost a century and a half of faith, concern, and the ability to adapt to the changing needs of society and its children and families.

All the charitable proceeds from all of the Masons within NC go to this wonderful organization. We encourage everyone to find out more information about this extraordinary charitable organization by visiting their website at the following address: http://www.mhc-oxford.org/index.html.
