Monticello Christmas Stocking Fund


November 30, 2017

As the holidays approach, we want to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who has so generously supported Monticello’s Christmas Stocking Fund. The Christmas Stocking Fund is fortunate to have received monetary gifts and donations from many individuals and organizations throughout the year. The community’s support of the Christmas Stocking Fund is truly remarkable - it is yet another reason why Monticello is such a great place to live!

The mission of Monticello’s Christmas Stocking Fund is to help families who need assistance in providing gifts for their children. The Christmas Stocking Fund also provides food baskets to families in need. The underlying principle is that no child, no matter how needy, should face an empty stocking on Christmas morning.

This year, we anticipate that the Monticello Christmas Stocking Fund will provide gifts for more than 60 children. The Monticello High School FCCLA members, along with other volunteers, will shop for clothes, toys, and other gifts. As always, parents will take the gifts home to wrap so that their children do not know the gifts came from the Christmas Stocking Fund.

We are currently seeking donations to support the Monticello Christmas Stocking Fund. Monetary donations can be made at Greenwoods State Bank or can be mailed to: Monticello Christmas Stocking Fund, c/o Ron and Jen Blumer, W4835 Pierce Road, Monticello, WI 53570.

In addition, Greenwoods State Bank will be sponsoring a Giving Tree to benefit the Christmas Stocking Fund. Stop by the Highway Location (401 W. Coates Avenue) for more information on how you can participate in the Giving Tree.

We will also be accepting monetary donations, as well as donations of new toys and warm winter clothing on Saturday, December 9th, during Santa’s visit to the Monticello Fire Station.

If you are in need of help this Christmas or if you know of families who could benefit from the assistance provided by the Christmas Stocking Fund, please contact us at or 938-1067.

On behalf of Monticello’s Christmas Stocking Fund, thank you for your support and generosity – You are making a difference in the lives of many children and families!
