As is our tradition, you are warmly invited to volunteer at the Stocking Project’s Folding and Stuffing:
- Friday, December 1, 2017
- Saturday, December 2, 2017
9:00am to finish (usually somewhere between 11:30am and noon)
- We have a “stop by anytime; stay as long as you can” operating procedure.
- Come to the “Chapel Entrance” on 5th St SE and ring the doorbell to come in!
Each year, we wrap small gifts for children in our community who would otherwise receive few, if any, gifts at Christmas. Each child receives a personalized hand-sewn stocking filled with small gifts, toys, toothbrushes, school supplies, games, and snacks. Capitol Hill Group Ministry has identified 149 specific children to receive the stockings Gale Munro has hand-sewn throughout the year. After we stuff the stockings, they will be delivered to the families by CHGM.
Both days, we gather in Fellowship Hall to wrap the presents and stuff the stockings. Food and drink are provided. Children are welcome to participate. We do not have any rules on how well the packages are wrapped and we can find almost any little task or job for you and your child to do.
For more information or to sign up to help, contact Kirsten Gullickson (email@example.com or 202-262-8419).
