Elwyn Elves Make Wishes Come True for Children and Adults with Special Needs
WHO: For the 20th consecutive year, the Elwyn Elves will work their magic during the
holiday season to brighten the lives of children and adults with special needs served by Elwyn.
The Elves program was created to bring a little something extra at the holidays into the lives
of children and adults. Originally, the Elves focused on the residents of the Media campus,
but the idea has expanded to include residents in community settings. There are more than
800 children and adults making a wish this year.
WHAT: Wish Tags are being created by the more than 800 Elwyn participants with a
“personal wish list.” The lists usually include items in the $25 range such as clothing,
games and electronics. Generous Elwyn Elves – from corporations to church groups to
thoughtful individuals – select one or more gift tags and can choose to actually buy and wrap
the items requested, or make a contribution to Elwyn to cover the cost. This year’s goal is
800 gifts, so if you are someone who enjoys giving gifts as much as receiving them, here’s
your opportunity to make a difference this season.
CONTACT: Companies, organizations and individuals can contact Patty Burke-Karr at
610-891-2326 for more information about becoming an Elwyn Elf. You may also
email email@example.com and we will gladly send you tag(s), further information, etc....
