First Lady Bonnie Short Selects Masonicare for Annual Support Campaign

Masonic Homes Kentucky was created in 1867 as an example of fulfilling the Masonic obligation to care for Masons, their wives, widows and children in their time of need. Though times have changed, the mission has not. Masonic Homes has nurtured a legacy of excellence and today it is recognized as a leader in providing award-winning care and services.

This legacy of caring continues through Masonicare, a program that provides charitable care and hous- ing to Masons, their wives and widows who are unable to fully pay for their care and meet specific re- quirements. Residents are provided quality care and housing and general living necessities like wheel- chairs, glasses, transportation, meals, clothing and more.

Masonicare residents of Masonic Homes require approximately $1.5 million a year or $215 per day. First Lady Bonnie Short is eager to help with this endeavour by promoting Masonicare as her program during the Year (2023-24). Bonnie has created a pin that can be purchased for $10 with all proceeds benefiting Masonicare. It’s a proud way to show your support for a program that provides so much.

Pins may be obtained, or Donations made by contacting your Masonic Homes District Ambassador.
