Thomas J. Henry Sets Sights on Another Record Breaking Year with Elf Louise Christmas Project

Author Jarod Cassidy

The 2015 Elf Louise Christmas Project is in full swing following a substantial pledge by San Antonio attorney Thomas J. Henry who is looking for another record breaking year with the non-profit. Mr. Henry announced Monday that he and his family would be donating $50,000 to the non-profit which provides toys to thousands of children and families throughout Bexar County.

This weekend, the Elf Louise Christmas Project will air a two-day radiothon on News Radio 1200 WOAI from North Star Mall. For every dollar an individual or business donates, the Henry family will increase that donation by 25 percent.

The Elf Louise Christmas Project had a record-breaking year last year, raising more than $286,000 with the help of Thomas J. Henry. Mr. Henry is hoping this year will be even bigger, benefiting more children and families.

“When you’re fortunate enough to be able to receive toys as children or provide toys to your children – you know we understand the joy that comes with that,” said Mr. Henry. “When you see a child that does not get to participate in that joy, it breaks your heart and it makes you want to come forward to help.”

Bexar County residents are urged take part in this growing tradition by making donations through the News Radio 1200 WOAI radiothon or online at www.ElfLouise.org.

About Elf Louise Christmas Prjoect

The project began in 1969 when our founder, Louise Locker, was a student at Trinity University in San Antonio. She found that for many San Antonio families, Christmas just did not exist. Louise began to look for a way to provide a few Christmas presents to some of these children. That first year, with the help of a friend, she collected gifts for children in 13 families. From that Christmas forward, the organization has been nothing short of a holiday miracle for the San Antonio area!

The Elf Louise Christmas Project is a 501 (C) (3) Non-profit organization staffed by all volunteers and funded by donations only. 98 cents of each dollar donated goes directly to the purchase and delivery of the toys.

The Elf Louise Christmas Project relies solely on the help of donations from grass roots San Antonio and from businesses that want to share their blessings at Christmas. People can also donate toys, but since Elf Louise needs over 60,000 gifts annually, we have to purchase many of them to meet the need of over 19,000 families. Their current budget is over $316,000. Those donations ARE 100% deductible.
