We have been involved with Christmas Magic/Holiday Magic for a long time. Each year homeless children write letters to "Santa" and our families purchase, wrap and deliver the gifts to these kids every year. For more information CLICK HERECHRISTMAS MAGIC PICS:

In 2009 Team Elevate worked Hand in hand with Christmas Magic to help deliver presents during the holidays to homeless children throughout Long Island. In total over 7,600 children received presents last year.
Our kids served as buyers, wrappers and even Santa's helpers as they delivered the presents directly to some of the shelters.
I can't stress enough the impact this work has not only on the kids who are receiving the presents, but also our kids who are making it happen. Kids helping Kids - it's an amazing thing and hopefully in 2010 we can make even bigger impact.
