Stuffing Stockings for Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen
Here's How You Can Help!
- We Want To Include Your Troop
Do you have a family member or friend who will be deployed during the Christmas Holidays? If so, we would love to include them. Please contact us with their name, address and how many stockings they would need. We will happily include their entire unit, platoon, squadron etc. (Stocking supplies are limited so contact us early) Please contact us and we will place their name on Santa’s list.
- Volunteer To Help Stuff, Pack, and Ship Stockings
Please join us by volunteering to help stuff, pack and ship stockings. Whether you would like to participate as a family, are a teenager who needs service hours or just want to have fun making a difference for our deployed troops at Christmas, all are welcome. We will be meeting in the Fields Cadillac Showroom on Saturdays, October 29th and November 5th, 12th and 19th from 9 am to 3:00 pm and Tuesdays, November 8th and 15th from 11 am to 3 pm. You’re welcome to come as many days and stay as long as your schedule permits. Please contact us to RSVP the dates you will join us so that we make certain we have enough supplies for everyone. RSVP your dates and times to Kathy.
- Help Us With Donations To Ship
Want a fun way to give this Christmas? Consider a donation drive with your family, in your neighborhood, at your Church, Work Place, Scout Troop, Bible Study, Civic or Social Group etc. We will happily supply bags and lists/instructions for the drive. The more items we receive, the more troops we can include. HOWEVER, NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL. Please contact us with questions or to schedule a bag drop off and/or donation pick up.
- Adopt Stocking Boxes for Shipping
Would you like to help but don’t have time to volunteer or run a donation drive? Consider Adopting a Stocking Box for Shipping. Each $20.00 donation covers the cost of shipping for one box of stockings Each stocking box that is “adopted” will include a special Christmas Card that says…. Shipping for this Christmas Stocking box was donated by ("Your Name Here") and will include a personal message from you.
If you have any questions or would like to contact us regarding our 2016 Stocking Project please feel free to email us or call Kathy at 904-599-7855.
