The Empty Stocking Fund empowers parents and guardians of children living in poverty by providing them with an opportunity to give their children gifts at Christmas time.
We have been bringing holiday cheer to metro Atlanta’s underprivileged children since 1927. Each year, the generous contributions received from thousands of Atlantans along with local businesses and foundations enable us to provide gifts for tens of thousands of children from birth to 12 years of age living in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties.
