The Elves' Gift Shop is one of the longest-running fundraisers in our area, having been held annually for the past 30 years. It has been the Club’s main fundraiser since 2003, raising over $7,000 a year. The gift shop is held at a local State College area school. Children shop for inexpensive items for parents, teachers, friends, siblings, and pets with the help of “elves” (local Girl Scouts). In 2004, we expanded the gift shop to include a small holiday craft bazaar in the cafeteria for the adult shoppers. The Elves’ Gift Shop also includes a snack bar, holiday raffle, and cookie sale, so while children are shopping, parents can relax and enjoy coffee and other refreshments at the snack bar or browse for holiday gifts. All proceeds from the Elves' Gift Shoppe benefit the club's current recipient.
