Empty Stocking Fund needs filling
Placeholder Image

The Exchange Club of Effingham’s Empty Stocking Fund campaign is accepting donations.
“Everyday living can be enough to deal with in the economic times we are experiencing, but during Christmas it becomes more difficult,” said Reggie Loper, Effingham Exchange Club Empty Stocking Fund chairman. “It is hard to explain to a child why that special gift they have dreamed of all year was not waiting for them Christmas morning. Open your hearts, and your wallets, for those having it a little harder.”
Anyone wishing to donate to the Empty Stocking Fund may make a contribution at any BB&T Bank and Renasant Bank in Effingham County. The Exchange Club is a 501c3 organization.
