IF YOU CAN'T FIND THE LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS, BE THE LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS.

We support local families in crisis

Our Impact

We've made a lasting impact in our community by being a ray of HOPE to those overwhelmed by darkness.

We shine a light and provide compassion and encouragement to locals in our community.  If there is a need, we find a way to meet that need – family, friend, or neighbor – it does not matter.  We are always willing to lend a hand and make a difference, because we care.

Who We Are

Ellie's Elves is a nonprofit agency that has served the local community since 2013.

Ellie Blaine’s courageous battle with pediatric cancer inspired thousands to come together and support our communtiy.  Ellie earned her wings and we appreciate everyone who shares Princess Ellie’s legacy and allows her light to shine through them.

"Nothing can dim the light that shines from within."
- Maya Angelou

Ellie’s Elves, founded by Joni Kanazawa, a breast cancer survivor, provides courage and a unique sense of empowerment to those individuals impacted by unforeseen circumstances as well as shining light during their darkest moments.   When a new “need” arises, they work with the ever growing Ellie’s Elves community to step up and provide for those individuals and families.
