Local charity tip donations

Community Matters

Here at Elpida, community matters to us. We donation a portion of our tip money to different local charities, a different one every 1-3 months.  There are so many great charities and organizations that work for the betterment of our community, and could use some more support to do what they do.  In addition to tips, we are accepting additional monetary donations.
