WCC is Helping for the Holidays

Don’t let the impact of Maria and other catastrophes steal what little joy the holidays bring in the middle of mass devastation. Help us bring  joy and toys and yes, a little safety into the lives of children devastated by disasters.

Project Elf Puerto Rico

Through the Volunteer Reception centers in Toa Baja and Punta Santiago, our local teams will host holiday festivities and distribute donated toys to the children of the most devastated Barrios.

Project Elf Haiti

Both the 2010 earthquake and Hurricane Mathew in 2017 have devastated Haiti’s already frail communities.

WCC Haiti was there to help and remains a constant source of support.

Your gift of joy and safety will be delivered directly into the hands of a child in need by our Haiti team

History of Project Elf

During the 9/11 recovery World Cares Center hosted holiday activities bringing together responders, survivors, volunteers and their families to celebrate the spirit of giving. The tradition continued in Haiti and through our Volunteer Reception Centers in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, serving those impacted by Superstorm Sandy and now in Puerto Rico.
