Elder Elf

happy senior with presents

We help with the basics throughout the year — food, a bath, trips to the doctor. Many seniors on very low fixed incomes have nothing to spare to celebrate the holidays. Last year with the help of 90 generous individuals and groups, the Elder Elf Program brightened the holidays for over 175 seniors and many more received gifts and other essentials to help them throughout the year. 

We need your help! If you are interested in adopting one of our clients for the holidays, the volunteer application will open in November 2019. You will be matched with a senior and sent a wish list of presents and essential items. Gifts may be dropped off at 2518 W. Tennessee St., Tallahassee, FL, 32304 or taken directly to the senior following schedule coordination with Elder Care Services.  

Opportunities are also available for groups. Contact Nicole Ballas at ballasn@ecsbigbend.org or (850) 245-5945 for more information.
