Elmcrest Elves

Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of Central New Yorkers, the children and families Elmcrest serves had gifts under their trees last year. This holiday season, you can join in the fun.

Make spirits bright by becoming an Elmcrest Elf! 

Elmcrest offers residential and community-based 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 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 order your gifts by Dec. 10. 

2. We shop for you:

The easiest way to make your heart grow three sizes is to use the form below to send a monetary gift. 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 13224

Because gratitude makes everyone happier, every Elmcrest Elf who provides contact information will get a thank you card from a child at Elmcrest.

Spread the joy of giving
