ELPO elves wrap presents for Relay for Life

Each year, volunteers from ELPO do a number of service projects to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.

During the holiday season, volunteers wrap gifts in exchange for donations. Cassie Joiner, legal assistant, helped coordinate the group that wrapped gifts. This year, Linda Gann, Heather Renick and Catherine Stone helped wrap the gifts. The group expects to raise about $250.

Also, during the week of Thanksgiving, Judy Smith sold baked goods in exchange for donations, also in support of the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. Judy, who is a legal secretary, raised more than $500 with her effort.

ELPO participates annually in Relay for Life, which officially kicks off in November and culminates with the Relay, which will be held June 7, 2013 this year in Warren County.
