The Empty Stocking Fund helps grant the holiday wishes of children living in poverty by providing parents and guardians with an opportunity to handpick their child’s holiday gifts.
HOW YOU CAN HELP Through relationships with wholesale distributors, The Empty Stocking Fund purchases brand-new, high-quality toys in bulk quantities at a fraction of their retail cost to offer a variety of age- and gender-appropriate choices. In December, we invite parents and guardians who are struggling financially to come to Santa’s Village where they can choose the gifts they want to give their children.
There are several ways to support The Empty Stocking Fund’s fundraising efforts, including making a donation, leading a Sponsor-A-Child campaign at your office, becoming a sponsor, and volunteering. The Empty Stocking Fund only has two full-time employees, so without the generous support of our sponsors, individual donors, and volunteers, none of this would be possible. With your help, more children across metro Atlanta will experience the joy and magic of the holiday season.
