Become a VIP Elf

Channel your festive energy as a VIP Elf. VIP Elves collect $250+ for the Foodbank. Simply create an online fundraising page and share the link via email and on social media. You can also collect cash and checks and deliver them to the Foodbank on packet pickup day with a pledge form. VIP Elves make a significant impact for our neighbors facing hunger. When every $1 can provide enough food for 4 meals, VIP Elves can truly make a difference. As a thank you, VIP Elves will receive a special apparel item, in addition to the long-sleeve t-shirt and iconic elf socks.
