The Neighborhood Elves

Please donate to the Northern Illinois Food Bank so all of our local Chicago neighbors can have a happy and healthy holidays! Hope you have a great holiday season and ring in the new year with lots of joy!

Who We Are

We are group of high school students from Aurora, Illinois that raise money for the Northern Illinois Foodbank by playing Christmas Carols at different venues throughout the month of December in the Chicagoland area. For the past few years, we have performed Christmas carols at grocery stores and malls around the area and donated our proceeds to the Northern Illinois Food Bank. Our group consists of piano, vocals, and brass instruments. Over 4 years, we have donated over $5,000 to the Northern Illinois Food Bank, and are currently featured on their donor wall in Geneva, Illinois. 

This year, we are planning on expanding our impact on the community, and we want to perform in different venues. We would like to work with the Christkindl Market of Chicago, Mariano’s of Naperville, and the Christkindl Market of Naperville to raise awareness and donations for the Northern Illinois Food Bank this holiday season. We think that giving back is an important and vital staple in our community, and we want to be able to help the less fortunate in our area have a memorable and joyful holiday season. 

Happy Holidays!
