2020 Holiday Gift Distribution

clic aquí para español

Children from birth through 12 years of age who live in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, or Rockdale counties and receive public assistance are eligible to receive gifts from The Empty Stocking Fund. This year, in an effort to keep you and your children safe and healthy, you will be able to shop online for your child(ren)’s holiday gifts.

You will need to register your child(ren) and upload proof of benefits (see detail to the right). Once your registration is approved, you will receive an email with a link to our holiday store where you will be able to choose holiday gifts for each eligible child. Once you have made selections for all eligible children, you will receive a confirmation with all of your order details.

By Thanksgiving, you will receive an email with information about how, when and where you will be able to pick up your gift packages. We are still working on a distribution plan that will allow for safe, contactless distribution and appreciate your patience.
