Time to fill the Empty Stocking
Placeholder Image

Effingham County citizens are encouraged to make their contributions to the annual Empty Stocking fund drive.
“Time is short, and it’s time to help make Christmas a happy one for families in Effingham,” said Reggie Loper, chairman of the drive.

This is a year that is difficult for many, there are many needs, we need everyone’s help. You can leave a contribution at any BB&T Bank and Citizens Bank in the county or mail it to P.O. Box 379, Springfield GA 31329.
