There’s just one new donation to The Empty Stock Fund today, but because it is for at least $10, it will be matched with a $25 gift from an anonymous benefactor. So the $22 donation from the Union Chapel Nutrition Site basically doubles, and is almost enough to check another child of Santa’s list.
We encourage churches, schools, businesses, civic groups to pass the hat and raise money to benefit the fund. Remember, with donations of $500 or more, The Robesonian will publish a photograph if that is requested. We can take the photograph, or you can provide one.
The fund has now reached $1,797 — enough to provide Christmas for 35 children, but there are 1,781 children in Robeson County who are counting on you.
Donations can be made in person at our office at 2175 N. Roberts Ave. or mailed to us at P.O Box 1028, Lumberton, N.C., 28359. Just make the check payable to The Empty Stocking Fund.
Each day The Robesonian will list the money donated and the contributors. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can do so by being listed as “A friend” or “Anonymous.” Donations can also be made in honor or memory of loved ones.
