Another successful Stockings For Soldiers year

Blue Ridge would like to extend a big heartfelt THANK YOU for generously supporting this year’s Stockings For Soldiers initiative.  Keystone Military Families reports that they shipped close to 12,000 holiday-filled stockings around the world to our military personnel just in time for Christmas. With support from the communities we serve, our annual fundraising and marketing awareness campaign helped raise $34,000 in monetary donations to support the costs of purchasing, shipping, and distributing the stockings.

Through your tremendous response, Keystone Military Families also received over 13,000 stockings, handmade ornaments, and personalized items, as well as over 1 ton of additional items that will help boost our soldiers’ spirits, show your support and appreciation, and remind them that we are thinking of them this Christmas season.

The KMF Stockings For Soldiers mission

Stockings For Soldiers is a Keystone Military Families annual campaign which aims to ship 8,000-10,000 holiday stockings filled with food, hygiene products, holiday decorations, Christmas cards, and other requested items. Each dollar raised for Stockings For Soldiers helps provide the stockings and stuffers, as well as defray the cost of shipping these heartfelt care packages to our deserving soldiers stationed around the world who won’t be home for Christmas.
