The KMF Stockings For Soldiers mission

Stockings for Soldiers is a Keystone Military Families annual campaign with a goal 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.

Blue Ridge Appreciates the Community Support

We want to thank all of the individuals, churches, civic organizations, schools, businesses, and volunteers who generously supported this year’s Stockings For Soldiers. Your generous contributions boost our soldiers’ spirits, show your support and appreciation, and remind them we are all thinking of them this Christmas season.
