It all began as a small, simple project to grant a few Christmas wishes for children in Bexar Country.
The Elf Louise Christmas Project began in 1969 when founder, Louise Locker, was a student at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. She found that for many San Antonio families Christmas just did not exist. That first year, with the help of a friend, she collected gifts for children of 13 families.
Since that first year, the Elf Louise Christmas Project has grown into a San Antonio tradition that brings Christmas to approximately 20,000 children each year. Gifts are chosen for each child, wrapped by our volunteers, and delivered by SANTA!!!
Join us on December 4 and 5 LIVE on News Radio 1200 WOAI as we broadcast to raise money for those toys and to bring smiles to as many Bexar Country children as we can in 2019.
We kicked-off today and continue tomorrow, Saturday, December 5 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Elf Louise Christmas Project will auction a number of fun and unique items to raise money for the organization. Check out the Online Auction Here.
