No one should have to dread the holidays.

The Empty Stocking Fund empowers parents and guardians of children by providing them with an opportunity to give their children the gift of a special holiday season.

Many families in St. Johns County have to choose between putting presents under the tree and keeping the lights on.

Every child deserves to feel special during the holidays — and you can help make it happen! The Empty Stocking Fund is possible because of people just like you who donate and allow local parents and guardians to buy food, clothing, and toys for their families during this special time of year.

Mail checks to:

Donors to the Empty Stocking Fund can be recognized weekly by publication in The St. Augustine Record if they choose, by name and amount, for their generosity. The gift can be made in honor or memory of a loved one, or a donor can request to be listed as anonymous. This information should be written in the memo line of a check, included in the envelope or noted when giving online.
