Empty Stocking Fund fills needs
Placeholder Image

A few days before Christmas, Mrs. M was preparing her small children for the fact that there would be no Christmas presents this year and nothing in the way of special treats as well.

One of the little ones had been sick. Medicine and staying warm had to come first.  But through the generosity of others, this Christmas was merry after all for this family and many others in Effingham County.

“Thank you for all your kindness,” said Reggie Loper and Donnie Rahn of the Exchange Club of Effingham County’s Empty Stocking Fund. “We hope everyone had a blessed Christmas and wishing you all the very best in the New Year.”
