Mom’s Christmas Stocking will take place on Sunday December 8th from 1 to 3pm at Grassroots Fitness Project (371 Amsterdam Avenue – 2nd Floor).
Share community, enjoy refreshments and fill stockings!
This annual tradition is organized by a long-time Upper West Sider named Wendy Strauss. It began when her mother passed and she found her request to continue to fill a Christmas stocking for her each year, filling it with the things she would love but give it to a woman in need. “Sharing the love we know with someone who really needs a shot of love. And in this way I will continue to share your Christmases and continue to be a part of my wonderful family.”
Mom’s Christmas Stocking seeks donations of stocking stuffers of essential items for women and children, such as soaps, lotions, shampoo, dental hygiene products, jewelry, hair accessories, gloves, scarves, hats, nail care, baby wipes, child safe toys, teething items – monetary donations in any amount go directly to purchasing these essential items and are greatly appreciated.
Please donate stocking stuffers! Bring your friends and family and fill stockings!
