Community Car Wash

Operation ELF is a not-for-profit service-based organization staffed completely by volunteers that has served families in the Greater Bay Area and Sacramento Areas for over 10 years. Every year, at the holiday time, we produce a project called ‘Operation ELF’, which stands for Everyone Loves Families. The purpose of this project is to bring hope, joy and the spirit of the holidays to families in need.i

Our goal is to strengthen our communities by bringing together local businesses and volunteers to benefit those families most in need. We are asking for your donation to this project so that together we build lasting relationships and contribute to the future prosperity of our shared community.

In 2015, we served over 50 families including over 150 children and in 2016 we served over 80 families including over 200 children. These families would have gone without holiday celebrations and gifts if not for the help of donors like you.

This year we are putting on “A Day on The Divide” a motorcycle poker run that will bring people together for a fun filled day on the George Town Divide raising money for the cause.
