Sign up to be a Santa:
Thank you for being the most important part of ELF Dispatch. Although we get
to play elves, YOU get to be the Big Guy! Our Head Elf works very hard to
try and match you with a child(ren) that you will have a great time getting
gifts for, so please give us as much information as possible for a good
We encourage Santas to make this a day with family and friends; go out to
a meal, shop at a leisurely pace, and the finish the experience with gift
wrapping to a movie with hot cocoa. This can be a wonderful bonding and
teaching moment for your own children, or make fantstic memories with
family members, co-workers, or good friends.
There is no limit as to what you choose to get your child. Some Santas get
2-3 items, other go crazy and get 20. We provide you with the child’s
first name, gender, age, favorite color, ALL sizes, including shoes and
a few things they have asked for or are into.
If you are worried that something may need to be exchanged, you can give
the receipts to the pantry to hold. If you should have questions, feel
free to contact the Head Elf and she will contact the parent for an answer.
We NEVER share information between Santas and parents without the
permissions of all parties involved.
Some Santas ask if they can pick up a gift card, groceries, or something
for the parent. This is up to you, it is NOT required.
We ask that you have all gifts wrapped and tagged with the child’s name,
and delivered to Pantry 279 between the 15th and 19th of December.
If you belong to an organization that would like to donate extra toys,
candy, winter clothing, stocking stuffers, etc, that is wonderful. We
offer those donations to children on the waiting list.
Please make sure you get a reply from the Head Elf with each
communication so you know we have received it.
As we know many Santas have extremely busy lives, especially this time
of year. We have elves who go shopping for unmatched children when any
money donated in December. Monetary donations can be made through the
made through the website
, mailed or brought to Pantry 279 at 501 E Temperance, Elletesville,
IN 27429, through Paypal to email@example.com, or through Venmo
Thank you SO very much for being a Santa and making sure a child, or
children, have a magical Chirstmas this year!
