RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - WAVI is looking for “elves” in our community who would like to adopt our client families for Christmas.

Elves can participate as individuals, families organizations or groups. As a WAVI Elf, you will be provided the information for a family, including the number of family members, their ages, genders, and a wish list for gifts. WAVI elves will do the gift shopping and wrapping. The last day to sign up is by 4:00 pm on Friday, December 10, 2021. Wrapped gifts will need to be delivered to WAVI by 4:00 on Wednesday, December 15, 2021. We are hoping to get elves for 50 families.
