Recipients

Register for 2018 Holiday Gift Distribution at Santa's Village

In 2018, children from birth through 12 years of age who live in Clayton, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry or Rockdale counties and receive public assistance benefits including Medicaid, Peach Care, SSI, SNAP and TANF are eligible to receive gifts from The Empty Stocking Fund.

To receive gifts, you must bring proof of public assistance eligibility (eligibility determination notice) and a photo ID.

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.

Lines are considerably shorter weekday afternoons.

If possible, please do not bring your children with you to Santa’s Village!

The last day to receive gifts is Dec. 22nd. For the best selection and to ensure that we are able to serve your family, come early!

The Empty Stocking Fund serves children in Cobb County by providing 1,500 gift packages to the Cobb Christmas program. For more information, please visit the Cobb Christmas program.

What to Expect on Your Visit

Within 48 hours of registering online you will receive a confirmation email with your Invitation ID and details about Santa’s Village. You will need to bring this Invitation ID number, a photo ID and proof of Medicaid benefits for each child for whom you are requesting gifts. 

The first step is to check-in. A volunteer will validate your invitation and confirm your children’s ages and genders. They’ll assign you an order number to take with you to the showroom waiting area.

When your order number is called, another volunteer will walk you through the showroom where you will be able to choose two toys and a book for each eligible child (all children will receive a package of socks and an educational item). All the items in the showroom are organized by gender and age, so it is easy to find the perfect gift!

Once you have chosen your gifts, your showroom volunteer will direct you to the gift distribution waiting area. While you wait, yet another volunteer will be picking your selected items from our warehouse shelves.  When your order is ready, a volunteer will call your number, and together, you’ll double check that everything is correct. Then you’re on your way to a Merry Christmas.
