George's Secret Elves collecting donations now through November

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – One local group is getting a head start on holiday fundraising this year.

George’s Secret Elves are currently collecting food donations to help out those in need in our community. Their mission is to come together to spread some cheer to the community throughout the year.

They have a number of projects and one of those is a fundraiser ahead of the holidays. It’s called the ‘Feed their Bellies’ campaign and it’s now in its ninth year of fundraising. Their goal- to collect 20,000 food items to feed 600 students in the community in time for Christmas.

The project got started in the memory of its founders’ father- even inspiring the group’s namesake.
And they’re no stranger to giving back to the community- as they typically host 20 fundraising projects in a calendar year.

“They just need that extra special little helping hand, a little bit of love and a little bit of sparkle,” says Kathy Johnson, Founder of George’s Secret Elves. “If you can help do that- even if it’s a box of mac and cheese or even if it’s helping us make some of the cards or coloring some of our projects- all of that is a piece that goes into something that brings a smile and a helping hand to somebody else.”

You can help get involved and find more information by visiting their Facebook page– they also have a GoFundMe page as well.
