OUR IMPACT

CARING WITH A PURPOSE

The Empty Stocking Fund (ESF) brings joy to the lives of disadvantaged children by providing toys and gifts during the holiday season and other core essential supplies throughout the year to support positive social and emotional development and academic success.

Through relationships with wholesale distributors and in-kind donations from trusted corporations, the Empty Stocking Fund acquires brand new items in sufficient quantities to offer a variety of age- and gender-appropriate holiday gift choices and core school supplies. In December, we invite parents and guardians of children(birth to 12 years old) that qualify for benefits through the state of Georgia to shop for gifts for their children. During back to school season and we provide school supplies to teachers and students of local Title 1 schools(schools with 80% or more of their students receiving free or reduced meals).

Giving can be so much more than time and money.

EVERY LITTLE BIT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE

Think your donation doesn’t make a difference? Think again! If every individual donor increased their annual gift by a mere 10%, that would amount to nearly $100,000 – enough to provide gift packages to 5,000 children living in poverty!
