Santa’s Elves: Kids Giving to Kids
Santa’s Elves is a chance to inspire life-long giving in your child’s life. It’s a fun and easy way to show your child how to give back and invest in your hometown. Unlike most other charities, we provide a hands-on experience for young children, helping kids give to kids. It’s just once a year, but something they’ll talk about year-round.
- The gifts will go to families living in Colorado’s poorest neighborhoods, like Sun Valley in Denver (near the Bronco’s stadium).
- Almost one-half of the 1,448 residents in Sun Valley are children younger than 18, and 78 percent of families live in poverty, according to neighborhood data compiled by the Piton Foundation. Average household income is $5,164 per year.
- The percentage of children growing up in poverty in Sun Valley is among the highest in the state.
- We work directly with Denver Housing Authority and the Rude Recreation Center to identify the children and families most in need.
