Many have already joined The Dane Foundation's Project Elf Corps but many are still needed! You can adopt an individual or a family with one or more individuals with disabilities. You will receive a Christmas wish list to use as you shop. You do the shopping, then provide your unwrapped items to The Dane Foundation for coordination, wrapping, and distribution! Don't want to shop....cash donations are accepted and we will do the shopping for you!
