What is Elf in Greenville?

Our 2023 Elf in Greenville project was the biggest yet! As he has in past year's, 'Buddy'  delivered teddy bears to all of the children at Prisma Children's Hospital and Serenity Place, as well as "comfort bears" to the Travelers Rest Police Department, Travelers Rest Fire Department, Tigerville Fire Department, and Duncan Chapel Fire Department.

This year, for the second time, Buddy  also  delivered bears to all of the children at Greenville's Shriners Hospital for Children! This adds another 50 teddy bear deliveries!!

Like previous years, there are two ways to donate:
1. If you go to the TR United Methodist Church website, click Give, and select Buddy Bears Project then your contribution will be tax deductible. This site only allows donation through bank transfer.
2. If you would like to contribute with a credit card, then you would need to use the GoFundMe link, but please note that these contributions through GoFundMe are unfortunately NOT tax deductible.

You can see our 2016-2022 videos below! (There was no video for 2020.) The 2017-2019 videos include footage from the visits at Prisma Children's Hospital, and the 2021 & 2022 videos include footage at Serenity Place. The 2022 video also includes footage at Shriners Hospital.

Thank you for all of your support. Be sure to check out our videos and share them with your friends and family.
