We are asking volunteers to DROP OFF donations starting Monday, October 8th through Friday November 30th, 2018.
Volunteer hours will start on Oct. 8th. Our doors will open from 6:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. from Mondays through Thursdays in the evenings only. Over the next eight weeks, we will be personalizing each stocking with the recipient's name, collecting the needed goodies, sorting all the donations, stuffing the stockings with goodies, boxing them and shipping them to troops in the remotest regions of the world. Previously, our boxes have gone to Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, Israel, Qatar, Kuwait, Jordan, Kosovo, Romania, Poland, Djibouti, Chad, South Korea and parts unknown.
Last year, over 1000 great volunteers helped us to mail out 1,350 boxes packed with 10,000 homemade, personalized Christmas Stockings that were filled with over 46,000 pounds of goodies. We also made and shipped 2,000 polar fleece blankets and 500 knitted hats for our troops.
Please remeber that the BEST way to help us is to purchase the goodies for the stockings. We only need 10,000 of every item on our Shopping List. Please hold a collection drive to help us to get enough goodies for the stockings.
are very blessed to have many ready-to-go- stockings for this coming
year, so for our fabulous sewing volunteers, please reduce the number
of stockings that you will send us. THANK YOU so very much for
all you do for our troups and our community project.
THANK YOU, Everyone. See You All in October.
