It is with a very heavy heart that I have to announce that Brandon’s Elves had officially begin dissolution of the organization on October 1, 2020. Unfortunately, this comes due to the unprecedented times of the pandemic and effects of it. The organization has been completely run on donations and fundraisers. This year, as you all are aware, fundraisers were just not able to be pulled together and we are just not able to plan one in the foreseeable future.
We would like to thank each and every contributor and volunteer over the last 5 years for your support. Without all of you, we never would have been able to be as successful as we were each of those years! We have made amazing friends and relationships with many of you along the way.
However, just because we are unable to continue on, doesn’t mean that the need has ended. I believe the Board of Social Services will have a large number of Holiday Program applications this year that will need to be filled. We have some left-over toys from last year that we plan on using and taking applications with the toys we have available to give, but that is limited. This year, please consider donating again just in a different way. Please reach out and sponsor a family or two. Every little bit helps! The Ocean County Board of Social Services Holiday Program phone number is 732-286-5930.
