Stocking Stuffer Challenge Brings Resources to Kids
For many, Christmas stockings are filled with fun (sometimes delicious) small gifts. Many kids however, especially those in foster care or insecure living situations, don’t even have a stocking to call their own.
In December 2014, Coca-Cola and Champions for Kids issued a challenge to Arkansas schools and youth-based organizations: fill Christmas stockings with essential items for children. Eleven schools or organizations with the most donated stockings received a $1,000 to help kids.
When Champions for Kids called the winners, the reactions and excitement was contagious. Check it out!
