Project Elf

Thanks to the generous community support received through Project Elf in 2017, we were able to serve 2,400 children and youth in need during the holidays! This year, we need YOUR help!

Each holiday season, The Christmas Box International (CBI) helps to fill Santa's sleigh for children, teens and young adults in our community who have been abused, neglected or faced 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.

How Can YOU Help with Project Elf?

Your tax deductible contributions serve our most vulnerable populations, not only during the month of December, but during all seasons of the year.  Donate today.
