Make an elf out of yourself for charity
The Tannery Marketplace is looking for a few good elves.
Each elf sighting reported by text message, email or phone will earn $1 toward the elf’s charity of choice. Each photo of an elf posted to the Tannery’s Facebook page gets $2.
To participate, register and pick up a numbered elf hat at the Newburyport Chamber of Commerce or the following Tannery shops: The Black Duck, Riverside Cycles, Newburyport Olive Oil Co., Eureka! Toys and Shanti Salon.
Since the program began in 2009, more than $12,000 has been collected for organizations such as the Rowley Council on Aging, the Amesbury holiday program and The Pettengill House. Several five-star elves have been participating since the beginning, earning a gold star for each year.
The program runs through Dec. 25. The Tannery is located at 50 Water St., Newburyport.
