A recent donation by the Wyatt Law Firm, PLLC, helped the Elf Louise Christmas Project exceed its 2020 fundraising goal of $300,000. For more than 50 years, the volunteer program has been distributing Christmas presents to children in need. That need is even greater this year because of the impact of the pandemic. We are proud to do our part to help families in the greater San Antonio area.
The firm’s donation, by way of the Wyatt Family Foundation, is the first installment of what will become an annual donation and year-round partnership with the Elf Louise Christmas Project. Our team is excited to help raise money and raise the profile of this fantastic program. It is one of the many ways we have stepped up our community involvement in response to COVID-19, from helping to feed essential workers and reward plasma donors to donating to food banks and animal shelters.
Every Child Deserves Presents From Santa
The Elf Louise Christmas Project was founded in 1969 by Louise Locker to make sure less fortunate kids had holiday presents too. Through donations, volunteers shop for and wrap thousands of toys and gifts. Those presents are then delivered in person by volunteers in Santa suits. The organization reports that this year they are serving many struggling families who have never needed help before. While the delivery process was changed slightly due to the pandemic, the Elf Louise Christmas Project was determined to continue their mission even under these difficult circumstances.
Wyatt Law Firm stepped up with a donation of $35,000 to meet that increased need in 2020. We have been so touched by the great work of the volunteers and the genuine gratitude of the children and families that we have signed on to provide ongoing support. In addition to our recent donation to the Elf Louise program, our firm will be promoting and underwriting several events over the course of the coming year, with the goal of raising $500,000 for next Christmas.
