Each year, the Butler and Mercer County communities come together by donating Christmas stockings filled with items for cancer patients. More than twelve local businesses and organizations generously offered to be collection sites for these stockings. After collection, Mrs. Claus and her team of elves gather all of the stockings to a single location and work together to distribute each and every one over the course of two weeks.
Stockings are delivered to patients receiving chemo/radiation treatments to over ten local cancer centers and hospice units. These treatments sometimes take hours and goodies in their stocking will hopefully help pass time and put a smile on their face!
We have been doing this project for several years and would like to continue giving local cancer patients a special gift filled with love and care for many years to come!
The goal of our project is to fill stockings with special items that can be gifted to either a male or a female cancer patient. Here is a list of some suggested items that can fit into a stocking, but please remember to be unique and creative! Stockings come in all shapes and sizes, just like us!
Our sponsors, Schneider's One Hour and Butler Radio Network, have been with us from the beginning. We appreciate their everlasting support! Stocking collections and delivery would not run as smoothly without them.
You can always drop donation items or filled stockings at our sponsor locations!
November 4th - December 4th
