Monticello Christmas Stocking Fund
November 28, 2019
As the holidays approach, we want to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who has so generously supported Monticello’s Christmas Stocking Fund throughout the year. We are thankful that the organizers of the Homecoming motorcycle ride donated the proceeds from the event to the Christmas Stocking Fund. In addition, we are grateful for the Monticello Community Club and their continued support. The Christmas Stocking Fund is also fortunate to have received many individual monetary gifts and donations 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. Volunteers will shop for clothes, toys, and other gifts. As always, parents will take the gifts home to wrap so that their children need 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 mailed to: Monticello Christmas Stocking Fund, c/o Ron and Jen Blumer, W4835 Pierce Road, Monticello, WI 53570.
In addition, we will be accepting monetary donations as well as donations of new toys and warm winter clothing on Saturday, December 14th, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or (608) 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!
