Project Elf 2012

Do you want to participate in adopting a family this holiday? Do you have items that you can donate, or volunteer time to help out? Maybe you are willing to send the 2012 elf list to friends who love this type of gifting ? Yes? Then welcome to Rich Chicks’ Project ELF 2012! 

 Project Elf, in cooperation with PICA (Parents in Community Action) is adopting two families who are coming out of a homeless shelter and rebuilding their lives. It takes ELF Central (that’s us) about 6 weeks to prepare for the ELF event, collecting what is needed by the families, coordinating transportation and volunteers. Everything is delivered in secret by volunteer elves on Christmas Eve. It is an INSANE and totally fun project. 

Here’s how it all goes down: We make plans for the families to go off and have a great day on the 24th. (Our partner Crave West End is a great help here!) Then our team of volunteers swoop in and in 6 hours totally transform the families’ living space, taking their nearly empty apartment (remember, they just moved from a homeless shelter) and move in furniture, set up beds, fill cupboards with supplies, grant Christmas wishes, and make what was a bare space a new fabulous home for them to start their lives over in. They just come home and “Santa” must have come while they were out!

 Please partner with us to create two very special Holiday Stories. I invite you to become an ELF yourself by donating any of the items on this list or doing hands-on delivery and set up of items the day of December 24. New and gently used items are BOTH a great fit for this project.
