Our mission is to see our community as more than just neighbours by opening our hearts to ensure that every family experiences the joy of Christmas.
Have you ever wondered who the Christmas Elves are and where we came from?
The original Christmas Elves program was run by the Devon Kinette Club, with the Ministerial Association assisting in the delivery of the hampers.
The program was then turned over to the Devon Ministerial Association and was run this way for the next several years.
In 2001, The Association of the Devon Christmas Elves was incorporated as it stands today. The CRA granted charitable status to the Association. Each October, an annual general meeting is held at which the election of officers takes place. Any person interested in the Association is welcome to attend.
Every year committee members plan a new campaign for Devon. With the help of many volunteers, the Association has been able to fulfill its mandate. Letters are sent out to local businesses, schools, churches and groups asking for donations. Collection tins are placed in retail stores and banks around town.
We thank this community for all that it has given in the past and look forward to working together on another successful campaign.
