RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - WAVI is looking for “elves” in our community who would like to adopt our client families for Christmas.

Elves can participate as individuals, families organizations, or groups. As a WAVI Elf, you will be provided the information for a family, including the number of family members, their ages, genders, and a wish list for gifts. WAVI elves will do the gift shopping and wrapping. The last day to sign up is by 4:00 pm on Friday, December 10, 2021. Wrapped gifts will need to be delivered to WAVI by 4:00 on Wednesday, December 15, 2021. We are hoping to get elves for 50 families.

Those staying at WAVI often come with nothing after leaving an abusive relationship and they hope the generosity of the community can brighten the holidays.

“They are here, they’ve left, they are in crisis. There just might not be those financial resources to purchase gifts. What parent doesn’t want to have something for their child and what child doesn’t want something magical under the tree,” Linda Shroll, Executive Director of WAVI, says

to sign up to help a family or call WAVI at 605-341-3292 to sign up.
