Make This Season Merry and Bright #forthekids

You can bring joy to kids and teens experiencing homelessness in your community! A fun, at home volunteer project for all ages!

All Stockings needed by December 13th

We kindly ask that with every Stocking, you also include a $25 gift card or donation. These donations ensure that PHA provides 300 youth experiencing homelessness with holiday gifts this year.

How to Make a Stocking Full of Hope:

1. Start with making a $25 donation for each Stocking, or include a $25 gift card to Target, Amazon, Visa, or any other store kids love. Please have gift cards in a separate envelope when dropping off the Stockings.

2. Purchase Stocking(s). Again, any size or color is okay! An example of a Stocking that is great to use can be seen here.

3. Choose who the Stockings are going to. You can make it for boys, girls or be gender-neutral. Stockings will be for students ranging from 3 to 24 years old.

4. Decorate the stocking(s) with stickers, paint, markers, etc. get creative!

5. Fill Stockings with fun items such as:

  • hot chocolate mix
  • holiday candy
