about us

The Charleston Elves are a group of volunteers in the Charleston community who are committed to making sure that children with cancer and their families have a wonderful holiday season.

In partnership with the CourageousKidz organization, the Charleston Elves help connect charitable individuals with deserving children through our “Become an Elf” program. Since starting in Charleston, we have helped provide gifts to over 500 needy children in the lowcountry region. With your help, we are excited to continue our mission of ensuring that the financial burdens of treating childhood cancer don’t prevent children from experiencing the joy of the holidays.
