Christmas Comes But Once a Year –

Or does it? This past Christmas parents across Central New York asked Santa’s elves to visit their children, inspect for good behavior, and hand deliver a personalized letter from the Jolly Old Elf, himself. Visit they did -- delivering holiday magic, dreams come true, and the spirit of giving.

Dispatched by the North Pole Inspection Company (, these elves did more than create lasting childhood memories. They delivered the ‘spirit of giving’ to southern Onondaga County when they generously donated one-third of their proceeds to Southern Hills Preservation Corporation. Southern Hills is a nonprofit agency that will use this donation, throughout the year, to provide housing services to low and moderate-income residents of Southern Onondaga County.

Since 1986, Southern Hills Preservation Corporation (SHPC) has been assisting individuals and families fulfill their dream of having safe, decent, and affordable housing. Located in LaFayette, SHPC serves residents living in the towns of Otisco, Onondaga, Pompey, Spafford, LaFayette, Fabius, Marcellus, Skaneateles, and Tully.

Southern Hills has funds available to help income eligible residents buy their first home, or make much needed repairs to their existing home. The agency can also assist with information and referrals to other programs. More information is available at, or stop by the office, where the spirit of giving is celebrated year round.
