Our mission is simple: to create a brighter Christmas for children.


Since our inception in 2010, Operation Elf Box has partnered with¬†nearly¬†2,300 families who have shopped complimentary at Elf Shoppe. We’ve added to Santa’s list the names of over 6,850 local children who might otherwise have gone without. The community has donated over 45,000 gifts to date, individuals placing these gifts in Elf Boxes located at businesses throughout Central Oregon and in the Willamette Valley. We view this as a Christmas miracle.

In 2014, our goal is to continue to partner with families in the community by providing a complimentary shopping experience. Good faith is our policy. Through this simple model we have discovered that we are able to empower these families and our friends.
