How Decorating Elves Gives Back to the Community

Tampa Bay has given so much to Nick Schriver since 2003, it’s no wonder he prioritizes giving back to the community. Without the residents here on the central Gulf coast, who knows where he and his team at Decorating Elves would be today!

The Team Comes First

To Nick, the most important part of giving back to the community is treating his own employees well. That’s why, along with competitive pay and benefits, all Decorating Elves employees enjoy bonus financial incentives for excellent performance. Employees also earn chances to win awesome prizes at our Annual Christmas Breakfast. In the past, our employees have scored kayaks, event tickets, and even cold hard cash! Adding a little joy to the lives of our employees and their families around the holidays is something we take pride in.

Caring for the Community

Nick and the Decorating Elves team also love contributing to causes in the Tampa area that align with our values and bring our neighbors joy. Nick volunteers his time to teach classes on entrepreneurship and workplace readiness for Junior Achievement, coaches youth soccer, and contributes to local nonprofits, including:

Tampa Bay Watch

Dedicated to saving the Tampa Bay estuary through research and education.

St. Pete City Theatre

This community theatre started back in 1925, and has not shut its doors since. They continue to set the bar for live community theatre in the state of Florida, and produce diverse and inclusive programs.

Dr. Carter Woodson African American Museum

Focused on preserving African American history in St. Petersburg as a way to promote respect, diversity, and social justice. In addition to exhibits of value to African American culture, the museum also provides educational experiences.

Florida Dream Center

A human services non-profit that provides a wide array of services to at-risk populations and groups.

St. Pete Free Clinic

Provides food, shelter, and healthcare to St. Petersburg residents in need.

At Decorating Elves, treating people with dignity and respect is just as important as the lighting designs we create. If you would like to know more about our community giving, please contact us.
