Calling all Besa Elves, we have another exciting way to support seniors this holiday season! Join Besa as we load three very large sleighs with over 5,000 presents.


Here's the plan:

8:00am: Meet at Santa's Workshop (1234 E Broad Street, 43215). We'll form a human chain, and pass presents down the chain and load them onto the sleighs. 


9:15am: Once the sleighs are loaded, we'll drive our own cars from Santa's Workshop to COAAA (3776 S High St, 43207). The sleighs will meet us at COAAA and then we'll form another human chain to unload the presents. 


Please note:

  • We are unloading presents at COAAA's main office. Seniors will not be at the office but you will get to meet the case managers who make this program possible.

  • This project takes place both indoors and outdoors. Wearing warm clothes and layers is encouraged.


Note: Santa is recruiting a couple of Volunteer Elves to drive their personal vehicle and deliver presents to partnering senior facilities. As a delivery elf, we'll load your car with presents at The Columbus Foundation and provide you a drop-off location. If this is something you are interested in, please add 'delivery elf' in the comments when you sign up!

A special thank you to our very splendid elf friends at Jeni's for providing the sleighs!
