Through relationships with wholesale distributors and in-kind donations from trusted corporations, the Empty Stocking Fund acquires brand new items in sufficient quantities to offer a variety of age- and gender-appropriate holiday gift choices and core school supplies.
In December, we invite parents and guardians of children(birth to 12 years old) that qualify for benefits through the state of Georgia to shop for gifts for their children.
During back to school season and we provide school supplies to teachers and students of local Title 1 schools(schools with 80% or more of their students receiving free or reduced meals).
The Empty Stocking Fund only has four full-time employees. Without the generous support of our corporate sponsors, individual donors, and volunteers, none of this would be possible. There are several ways to support the Empty Stocking Fund’s fundraising efforts and all donations are tax-deductible.
