Become a Bissell Elf

Make an Impact this Holiday Season!

Too many individuals and families are struggling in our community–especially during the cold winter months. Your effort as a Bissell Elf volunteer and advocate will help ensure more people receive the support they need to build a brighter future.

Whether you’re a student looking to make a difference, retired and would like to lend a hand, or part of a group looking for a team-building activity, we invite you to volunteer and become a Bissell Elf!
