Everyone's An Elf Project
The Everyone's An Elf Project was started in 2003 by the "Elves" at the Washington County Communications Center. Employees donate toys and raise money to buy gifts for families in need during the holidays by having an annual bake/soup sale. The goal is to be able to sponsor several families each year. If you are wanting more information or are interested in donating to the "Elf" project please contact Cara Sorrells at 319-653-2107.
