The Elves began in 1997 when a group of neighbors in the Village of Milford wanted to adopt a family who need assistance giving their children a traditional special Christmas morning they could cherish. Retired-Milford Police Officer, Rick Sharp found the first family for the Elves and The Village Elves were formed. Since that very special Christmas morning in 1997 the Elves have grown to over 400 Elves who are from all communities surrounding the Huron Valley area. Twenty-five years later The Elves work under the direction of The Milford, Michigan Police Department in conjunction with Huron Valley Schools & Papa Elf with his keepers- Joyfully helping area families in need enjoy memorable Christmas.
