  • Stocking fund gives thanks for successful 2021 campaign
    The Greene County Christmas Stocking Fund distributed food, clothing and toys to 260 children and their families and 230 senior citizens. CONTRIBUTED

The Greene County Christmas Stocking Fund (GCCSF) has recently completed another successful year.

This year we distributed food, clothing and toys to 260 children and their families and 230 senior citizens. Additionally, we were able to supply 300 toys to the Putnam County Fire Department, 120 toys to CASA (foster children), and 50 toys to Circle of Love.

Lloyd and Vickie Jenkins, Co-Chairs, along with board members Targie Folds, Vicky McBride, Tonya Miller and Lee Bradway would like to thank the 40-50 volunteers who worked with us to make this another successful campaign.

There are many churches, businesses and organizations that support the GCCSF by way of cash donations, fund raising, and/or toy collections. We would like to thank those listed below for their continued support. In addition, we send thanks to the hundreds of people in our community who support the GCCSF each year with your generous cash and toy donations.

We would also like to thank The Marine Corp Toys For Tots. We continue to have a successful affiliation allowing for all of their collected toys to stay in Greene and Putnam counties to support our children.

The GCCSF is a not-for-profit, all volunteer organization and could not achieve this success without the continuous support of volunteers, businesses, churches, organizations and individual donors. Thank you for helping to make Christmas a little brighter for those in our community who are less fortunate.
