ElkhartCares is committed to helping feed families in our community and providing them with essential needs.

ElkhartCares has prepared bags of toiletries and essentials to go to local families that need a caring hand. Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who helped assemble the bags! We hope it will bring some ease and comfort to the families we serve. To receive toiletries, local families of the school district can visit ELGHS, or can contact us for a special delivery. (Special item requests must allow extra time.)

Santa’s Village

November 30, 2019

Like a scene taken straight out of a Hallmark Movie, the downtown Village Square was bustling with holiday delight when ElkhartCares transformed the village square into a magical Santa’s Village for our community.

Visitors were able to enjoy refreshments from local vendors and treats to help keep them warm.

The children were able to sit on Santa’s lap and visit with a Snow Princess. Horse-drawn carriage rides were also available. The Village held the traditional holiday tree lighting ceremony to the sound of carolers to kick off the holiday season.

Library Storytime with Santa’s Elf

December 19, 2019

ElkhartCares and the Elkhart Lake Public Library were delighted to invite the community to meet Santa’s elf, Ivy, who read a holiday story to all the children! Santa’s Elf had also been asked by Santa to collect all the children’s holiday wishes to take back to the North Pole. Refreshments and fun activities were provided during this free event! This special occasion kicked off with a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new library seat, “The Reading Tree’, which was donated by ElkhartCares for our community to enjoy.
