Children Helping Veterans Need Your Help


Children Helping Veterans Need Your Help

This will be the third year that Jackson, Maisie, and Rainah will be Stuffing Stockings for Veterans! It all began a few years ago when our friend, Beth Skinner of Skinner Realty, put a call to action on Facebook that she was collecting stockings for veterans and if anyone wanted to contribute, we could drop them off and she would deliver them. We couldn’t think of a more fitting event to be a part of. Since then this will be our third year donating stockings. Last year with the help of many who donated, the kids were able to fill 25 stockings with essentials and treats for local veterans!

This year is no different! They are hoping to raise $500 again, in order fill 25 stockings again! If you would like to help, here is how:

  • Donate money so we can buy all the items remaining in bulk
  • Donate a minimum of 25 of a single item from the list below)
  • Slim Jims or Beef Jerky
