About This Program

Raenette Mohni, pictured on the left with her daughter, has served as the chief elf of this program for the past 15 years. Keeping kids happy and warm is the program's motto. Read the News-Times article.
The program goes hand in hand with the South Lincoln Resources' Holiday Food Baskets. Households who have children 18 and under who are permanent, full-time residents of our service area are eligible to complete the back of the Holiday Food Basket application with as much information as possible regarding allergies, clothing sizes, reading levels, likes and wish lists. Children of school age must be attending local schools, preschools or home schools registered with Lincoln County School District.

Our goal is to provide every child with "something warm and something fun." The more information we have about a child's likes, the better we can do to make Christmas wishes come true. Sorry, high-end electronic games, devices and gaming systems are not available.

This program is sponsored by South Lincoln Resources.

Need Help?

Fill out a Holiday Food Basket application (available starting at the end of September). Please print clearly and provide as much information as possible! Be sure to include a phone number where you can be reached so the Elves can call if they have any questions.

If you need to speak to an Elf, call 541-563-3710. Leave a message and phone number. Chief Elf, Raenette Mohni, will get back to you.
