Stockings for Soldiers Now Collecting Care Items

Stockings for Soldiers Now Collecting Care Items

Help us collect the care items for our annual Stockings for Soldiers campaign in support of our troops deployed and away from their homes this holiday season.
We will send stockings to your military loved one if you provide us with a name and current mailing address. Many of the addresses we have are out of date so please contact Betty Matthews, 972.727.5836, by Sunday, October 31, so that your loved one can be included.
Shop for the care items listed below and bring them to the church from October 17 through October 31. We have labeled bins in the atrium where you can leave your donations.
You can also order items directly from our Amazon wish list, and your gifts will be delivered right to the church.
