Corporate & Foundation Support

We have the support of several foundations and corporations, and we are grateful for their continuing commitment. There are many ways an organization or company can support Project Elf, such as sponsoring supply drives or partnering with us on community projects. If your organization is interested in supporting Project Elf, please contact Executive Director Terri Hozhabri at terri@projectelf.org or 918-810-9351.

Community Partners
We are fortunate to be able to partner with several local organizations who have an equal desire to level the playing field for school age children. Whether it’s extending our reach with uniform distribution in partnership with Assistance League’s, Operation School Bell Program, distributing shoes donated by Runner’s World or through the many generous school and church drives, we are without a doubt able to serve children many times over because of these affiliations. Thank you to each of our community partners!

Stories & Thank Yous
“The part I liked the most about the field trip was seeing the animals. There were actually some animals I never even knew existed. There were also animals I expected to see, like the elephants and monkeys and giraffes. I really enjoyed the trip, thank you Project Elf for paying for the trip.”
Hannah Vaughan
“I would like to say thank you so much for giving us the money to go to the zoo. Without the money we could not go at all. At the zoo, my group rode on the train, which was a lot of fun. We saw animals, and we ate a whole lot. Well, some of us did. One thing that I liked about the trip is that we got time away from school and no work. Also, we were with our friends. My favorite animals that we saw were the cheetahs. I loved their coats. Well I just want to say thank you and I hope we can do this again.”
Brooklyn Sampson
“Thank you for the backpack of goodies. I am doing a good job using all of my school supplies. Thank you for the books and my new tennis shoes. I hope you will select my school again! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
