Each year there are over 100 requests for assistance for children within our school district in Bellevue. Those families are lined up with agencies and programs that exist throughout our area. However, each year a number of children simply cannot be placed. For those children the Christmas Elves program comes in to play where private donors are matched with a child to “help” that family have a Merry Christmas. The Elves aren't expected to be the end all for each child, but are asked that they help make things just a bit brighter. The children range in age from 2 years old up to 15 years of age. The Elves are asked to provide basic needs like socks, shoes, coats and underwear then perhaps add a gift or toy. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
