Get in the Christmas spirit and help out Jolly Old St. Nick this Christmas season by playing an elf at Santa's workshop.

The Epic Center, downtown Kalamazoo, will be transformed into the North Pole and Santa's Workshop this holiday season. Kris Kringle and Mrs. Claus will be there but they need some elves to help make this Christmas magical. That's where you come in. Volunteers will don the pointy ears and greet the kids, help with letters to Santa and oversee crafts and treats. The number one asset that will get you the gig? Be holly and jolly!

Of course there's no pay, (real elves only get paid in Christmas cookies, anyway) but, if you remember the enchanting trip to the mall as a kid, the anticipation of sitting on Santa's lap and telling him everything you wanted for Christmas, you'll want to be a part of making very special childhood memories.

Santa’s Workshop is open Thursday to Sunday beginning Saturday, November 30 through Tuesday, December 24th.  Volunteer hopefuls can get more information and sign up here.
