Salvation Army ‘elves’ help with holiday tasks

Dear Santa,

It is just a matter of days now till Christmas comes. This is a season that we all look forward to.

So many stories and traditions are associated with this magical occasion.

For example, the tradition of elves helping Santa is one of many traditions associated with the holiday season.

It is common knowledge that elves help Santa design and make the wonderful toys and gifts he brings to children.

Elves have other duties as well. Some elves take care of Santa’s reindeer and keep his sleigh in good condition, ready to fly through the skies on Christmas Eve. Others help Santa keep his naughty and nice list in order, and some elves guard the secret location of Santa’s village.

Elves also begin to make sudden appearances the days leading up to Christmas.

The Salvation Army has their own “elves” making appearances weeks before Christmas.

The Salvation Army “elves” help in so many ways — packing and distributing toys, food, bell ringers at the Christmas kettles, Advisory Board members overseeing the business of The Salvation Army, groups and families making donations — the list is endless.

The Salvation Army “elves” seem to always have a smile of their face as they scurry with the tasks needed in the Christmas season. They are all truly appreciated!

Merry Christmas!
