Stuff a Stocking
Help put a bit of magic in the lives of kids in need this holiday season!
It’s hard for many of us – adults or children – to imagine not being able to celebrate during the holiday season. But for many of the families that we serve, finding the extra money to afford a holiday celebration is a struggle at best, and frequently impossible.
You can help by stuffing a stocking for a child (or for an adult!) living in poverty this holiday season!
What do you need? A holiday stocking of course, and here are a few “stuffing” suggestions…
A child size fleece blanket
A snuggly stuffed animal
A child’s toothbrush & toothpaste
Travel size games like Sorry/chess/checkers
Perfume/fragrance for 9-12 yr. olds
Small blank journal & pen
Small flash light with batteries
Soap & soap case
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Small shampoo and conditioner
Lip balm or chap-stick
Nail manicure kit
Crossword or Sudoku book
Deck of cards
When you’ve finished stuffing your stocking…. send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll link you with either a local shelter where you can bring it, or to one of the impoverished communities we help where you can ship it. Either way, an outreach worker will hand out your stocking to a mom or dad in need to give to their child, or to an adult in need!
