Our goal, with great support from local families, groups and businesses is to provide every child in our care, and their host siblings, with a Christmas Stocking each year. This typically means that over 400 stockings are created, stuffed and distributed each year – a major undertaking, and we are very thankful to the generosity of our neighbors throughout the Wenatchee Valley!
We kick the Christmas Stocking Project off every year as part of the community-wide Make a Difference Day activities in late October. We rely on the community to:
- Sew stockings, patterns are available at our office
- Donate toys, games, books, puzzles, gift cards, etc. to fill each stocking
- Help us fill the over 400 stockings that are made every year
Stockings can be donated empty or already filled. Empty stockings are filled by CASA Volunteers starting in early December with donated items. We accept donations of new items throughout the year.
