Elmcrest Elves 2020

This holiday season, you can make spirits bright by becoming an Elmcrest Elf - providing gifts for children who are overcoming major obstacles in life.

Elmcrest offers residential and community outreach programs that serve children with emotional, behavioral and psychiatric challenges, as well as children with developmental disabilities and severe medical conditions. Most of our children also come from impoverished homes. Your gift will bring you the joy of giving because it will be so greatly appreciated by our children.

There are two ways to become an Elmcrest Elf:

1. You shop for gifts:

Visit Elmcrest's Amazon Smile Charity List page to see the toys and gifts our children want and need this holiday season. The gifts you select and pay for will be shipped to Elmcrest so we can put them under the tree. (Please complete an Amazon gift receipt when you purchase so that we can thank you for your gift!) Want to shop on your own and bring the gifts to Elmcrest? Contact Janene at jbartell@elmcrest.org or 315-446-6250 for information. Please make sure your gifts arrive at Elmcrest by Dec. 18.

2. We shop for you:

This is the easiest way to make your heart grow three sizes. Just choose a value below and click "Send." We'll buy wish list gifts of the value you choose and put them under the tree for the children Elmcrest serves.

    Prefer to give by check? Please send it to:

    Elmcrest Children's Center
    960 Salt Springs Road
    Syracuse, NY 14224

    Because gratitude makes everyone happier, every Elmcrest Elf will get a thank you card from one of our children.
