Help provide Christmas-morning gifts for children and youth in need.

Each holiday season, The Christmas Box International helps fill Santa’s sleigh for children, teens, and young adults in our community who have been abused, neglected, or face homelessness.

Project Elf offers fun and meaningful opportunities for businesses, individuals, families, neighborhoods, schools, scouts, and church groups to brighten the holidays for those in need becauseevery child deserves a Christmas.

How Can You Help with Project Elf Today?

Donate Gift Cards

Our greatest need is for $25 Walmart Gift Cards. We provide these to the families with children in the system to purchase gifts their children want and need. We want to empower parents to provide a positive holiday experience for their children. Gift cards also help us buy specific items for the children in The Christmas Box Houses or allow teens to do their own Christmas shopping. 

Our goal this year is to collect at least 2,000 cards, which will help 1,000 children have a Merry Christmas Morning.

Donate new clothing, toys, and essential needs from the Christmas Wish Lists

Purchase gifts from our Christmas Wish Lists and deliver them to a Christmas Box House (or have them delivered by Amazon). Donated gifts typically range from $10 – $50. Out of respect for the kids and health precautions, we only accept new items.

Gifts for specific children are selected by staff as children and teens come into the shelter throughout December so that even if they move on before Christmas Day, their gifts are given to their new homes to wrap and give to them on Christmas.

Organize a Project Elf Donation Drive

Join with others by leading a Project Elf Donation Drive to collect gift cards, gifts, and monetary donations as a group. To learn more, click here.
