St. Frederick Baptist Church Mission Outreach presents Elves for the Elderly, a program to help collect and give gifts to some of the community’s most senior members.

As chief elf and organizer Bessie Jackson points out, “The elderly were not always elderly. At one time they raised us, taught us, paid taxes for us, fought for us, loved us. This Christmas, help us bring them some deserved joy by donating to their holiday cheer.”

Mission Outreach is collecting slippers, mittens, gloves, mufflers, socks, night lights, blankets, lap quilts, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, large print books and “anything else you would want for Christmas.”

Monetary gifts are also accepted to help elves purchase gifts.

During the month of December, the elves will wrap and distribute these special gifts to the elderly in the community.
