Online Originals

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Elijah’s Yard Party started as a way to put smiles on the faces of families throughout Onslow County during the pandemic.

Kristin Greer and her son Elijah decided to get creative and stay COVID-19 safe with yard party signs. In October, the mother and son duo decided to make it really mean something.

They raised $800 for the Onslow County CHEW program by “booing” people’s yards.

Now, the Greers are leaving “elves” as a surprise to wake up to. All donations are going to Onslow County’s Christmas Cheer program.

The community is joining in on the fun, sponsoring “elves” to pop up at local businesses and neighborhoods. So far the “elves of Onslow County” have raised about $1,000 for the Christmas Cheer program, but Elijah’s goal is $2,000!

Here’s how to get involved:

On the back on the “elves,” you will find a sign (below). To elf someone else, you just follow the directions. Please call prior to Dec. 12.
