ELF PROGRAM

WHAT WE DO

Christmas is a happy time – for most of us.  But, for a few people in Nanoose Bay, it is a time of sadness. 

High expectations, money woes and loneliness can be intensified during the holiday season.

The NCS Elf Program helps to brighten the season for families and seniors by providing special gifts from their neighbours.

For more information on how you can brighten Christmas for both children and adults by buying one special present – read Be an Elf.

For more information on how to sponsor a family or senior this Christmas – read Playing Santa.

FROM THE HEART

2015 ELF PROGRAM

142 CHILDREN

In 2015, donations of pyjamas, hoodies, socks, toys, and gifts cards were received via Christmas trees at multiple locations throughout the community.

48 ADULTS

Adults & children alike were thrilled to receive special gifts from anonymous elves.  These were individuals and groups who care so much about their neighbours that they embodied the spirit of the season by purchasing and wrapping presents for their sponsor family or senior.
