Christmas is an exciting time for families, especially the children. But for families struggling to put food on the table every day, the holidays just bring extra stress. Walton County’s Empty Stocking Fund seeks to alleviate some of the stress for those families during this time and ensure that they too can experience some of that Christmas magic by providing holiday meal boxes for needy families.
Walton County is beginning the application process for those in need of a little help this holiday season. Those interested can stop by the Historic Rock Gym at 135 Main Street between 9 a.m. and noon on Wednesday, Nov. 15 to fill out an application. Applicants will be notified by mail if they are approved to receive a box of donated canned goods, which will be delivered on Saturday, Dec. 16th.
If you are interested in volunteering to help pack or deliver the boxes, email Kristy Peters at email@example.com.
