Stocking Stuffer Drive


November is the start of a joyous holiday season for most of us. However, there are children living in our county and surrounding counties who are less fortunate than some of us and are in need of our service. Coffee County alone has over 200 children who are currently in foster care, with only around 20 foster homes available. Children who are not able to be placed in homes within their home county are placed in neighboring counties, which can affect potential parental visits. Join us in partnering with the Called to Care of Coffee County and Called to Care of Ware County to provide Stockings and Stocking Stuffers to our current foster care children. Children in care range from 0-17 years old, so small gifts for all ages are accepted, including $5-10 gift cards to fast food restaurants. Similar to recent toy/canned food drives, each department can gather items in their areas. We would like for each department to designate a box or area to collect items. All collected items should be delivered to the Engram Hall 1st Floor Conference Room or to the Cashier’s Window on the Waycross Campus no later than December 13, 2019 by 12:00 p.m. All donations will be delivered to those in need by December 14, 2019.
