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.

To learn about the joy of sponsoring a family read Playing Santa. To understand the process of sponsoring a family or a senior click here.

FROM THE HEART

2017 ELF PROGRAM

ELF DONATIONS

In 2017, donations of pyjamas, hoodies, socks, toys, and gifts cards were received via Christmas trees at multiple locations throughout the community.  In addition to these in-kind donations, a total of $32,707 in cash was donated to the Elf Program 2017.

FAMILY/SENIOR SPONSORS

Adults & children alike were thrilled to receive special gifts from anonymous elves.  These 31 individual and group sponsors are people 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.  A total of 57 adults and 58 children received special gifts from their sponsors.
