Welcome to Helping Green ELFS
                            Ever Loving Family's Support Team!!!!

The 5th Annual Free Christmas Event is Cancelled
I am very sorry to announce during the almost cancelled note*** We just didnt get the response we needed....

We appreciate any things we got.. and I think we would have gotten more toys and stuff .. This event cannot function without the volunteers, without the funding, without the physical support .....

Unfortunately We had more people signing up for this event.. over 78 more people**** which brought the counts to well well** over 2,000 people planning to attend.... We likely would have had more If I didnt close up the webforms.......:(

We had 3 comments to volunteer... Only 1 actually messaged us privately. ... We needed 50 ++....
I appreciate the offer for the basement storage...
But with all this against us.. and still not gaining funding help... or have a transportation truck (Last year we had 26 foot truck) We needed it for the day before, the day of and the morning of the day after...

We appreciate the few people who stepped up to offer help and resourcing...

This was truly a difficult decision...
I hope that people who have donations.. consider adopting a family through our program where we encourage all gently used things, homebaked and new things.....
Because people who are in need typically need more and appreciate it.
I hope to fill a few families needs for Christmas this year...
I really hope and encourage you as well.....
