$925,000 awarded in 2021!

Despite months-long closures over the past two years due to the pandemic, (three months in 2021) the White Elephant continues to honor its mission of supporting community organizations.

In 2020, we gave away $590,000 even though the store was closed for more than six months. In 2019, a non-COVID year, we awarded $1.7 million, which is more typical.

“The community continues to support us with donations and purchases,” said Contributions Committee co-chair Judy Barkley. “But, without volunteers, none of this would be possible!”
