Christmas Stockings
Last year, through the generosity of the community & focused efforts of an Boy Scout, we were able to provide every child on campus with a stocking. We’d like to make it a reality this year but will need help!

    • We are in need of both stockings & stocking stuffers.
    • Donations received after Thursday December 7th are not guaranteed to be used for the holiday as stockings will be given to children Saturday December 10th.

*All stocking items will be organized & stuffed based on age & gender in preparation for disbursement.

Date: Thursday December 7th
Time: TBD
