Dells Elves is a group of ladies in Dell Rapids that host a fundraiser every year to raise money for a group called Christmas for Our Kids.
“Christmas for Our Kids” is a long standing community project started by Sue Horstmeyer and currently spearheaded by the local ESA women’s organization. Because of the generosity of the Dell Rapids community, we are able to ensure a Merry Christmas for all of our Dell Rapids kids. Last Christmas we were able to provide gifts to 136 children and gift cards to 56 families in the Dell Rapids area. Those kids truly had a Merry Christmas because of your kindness. The “Christmas for Our Kids” project works like this: • Families in need are identified through anonymous referrals. We may all know a family in our community that is going through tough times and could use our help to provide those extras over the holidays. • Referred families are contacted and kid’s “wish lists” are requested. • These “wish lists” are filled through donations and delivered to families prior to Christmas.
