Stockings for Soldiers Campaign Results

Blue Ridge helped brighten the holidays for our troops overseas this year through our 11th Annual Stockings for Soldiers campaign.

This year’s effort brought in close to $22,000 in monetary donations (to help purchase items needed and cover shipping costs), 3,000 pounds of stocking stuffer donations (including food, hygiene, and other requested personal items), and over 17,500 signed cards with personalized Christmas greetings showing support for our military personnel.

Blue Ridge would like to thank our customers and the communities we serve for another successful year of collecting for the Keystone Military Families’ Stockings For Soldiers program.

“Even in the midst of a pandemic, our communities continue to rally around our men and women in uniform stationed in other countries who will not be home for Christmas,” said Cindy Mellinger, Marketing/Community Relations Coordinator for Blue Ridge Communications. “Our focus on online monetary donations was certainly different, but the response has just been amazing. We cannot say thank you enough to the many individuals, churches, civic organizations, schools, businesses, and volunteers that made for another successful year.”

Here's How Stockings for Soldiers Helps

Stockings for Soldiers is an annual campaign that delivers nearly 10,000 holiday stockings overseas. This is Blue Ridge's 11th year supporting the effort, which is led by Keystone Military Families. This Shoemakersville, PA based non-profit charity provides caring support for our troops, veterans, and their families.

Through the support of donations, Keystone Military Families packages and ships gifts like food, hygiene products, holiday cards, and other items that show we're keeping our troops near and dear to our hearts. This powerful gesture is a major commitment for us at Blue Ridge.

Thank you for helping us make the holidays special for as many as possible this year.
