Joanne Coccia – Founder of our Lodge, June 1932-October 1991

This Website is dedicated in her memory…
The Joanne Coccia Lodge #2553 located in Fontana, CA is one of the State Charters of California. It was originally formed under the name of “The Inland Empire Lodge #2553.” Our late sister Joanne Coccia was a very instrumental leader in the early days of our Lodge and the members later dedicated the lodge in her name. The Joanne Coccia Lodge#2553 and the Joanne Coccia Lodge #2553 Foundation are non-profit organization serving the Inland Empire of Southern California.  The volunteers of our lodge have spent countless hours and money to support the good works of our lodge.  We wish to acknowledge their dedication to “SERVICE ABOVE SELF”.    The money we raise support our youth’s sports programs, high schools workability programs, college scholarships, Cancer Society, Alzheimer’s Disease, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Fontana Lewis Library and Technology Center, Cooleys Anemia, Toys for Children, Loma Linda Birth Defects Library, and many other worthwhile charitable organizations seeking our help every year.  In addition, we support the Sons of Italy Grand Lodge Western Foundation of California.
