Organize a Project Elf Donation Drive
Organizing a Project Elf Donation Drive lets you involve others who might not be aware of the needs of the children being met by Project Elf. Many families, businesses, and groups enjoy the camaraderie of joining together to give, and to invite others to give.
Donation drives are also a great way for youth to gain a greater appreciation for the blessings they have by sharing them with others who are less fortunate.
There are numerous ways to conduct a successful Project Elf Donation Drive:
- Using a giving tree with Project Elf ornaments listing gifts from the Christmas Wish Lists (and of course gift cards);
- Passing out fliers to your neighborhood and then having a donation Pickup day;
- Have a “Bring a Gift to Work Day”;
- Host a Facebook fundraiser;
- Simple word of mouth; and so on…
The possibilities are as broad as your imagination.
The key to a successful Project Elf Donation Drive is simply to ask.
You can invite people and companies to visit the website www.thechristmasbox.org to learn of our mission: that every child deserves a childhood … and a Merry Christmas Morning.
Then they can either donate directly on the website or they can join you in purchasing gifts and/or gift cards. After you have collected all of the gifts and gift cards you can make an appointment and drop them off as a group.
One tip: be mindful of the deadlines, December 2nd for gift cards and December 8th for gifts, and plan accordingly. (Monetary donations can me made at any time.)

Good luck and have fun.
