Stockings for Soldiers

 

Christmas_2012aSinnissippi Quilters has been sending stockings to deployed soldiers since 2005. The quilters work all year making stockings, collecting non-food items and raising donations for stocking stuffers and shipping. Monetary donations are collected year round.

Please click below to see the Soldiers’ Wish List of items used to fill the stockings. The non-perishable items are collected throughout the year. The food items are collected from September until November.

In November we stuff the stockings with the collected items and send them to various bases of deployed service personnel for distribution. The soldiers are very appreciative in receiving stockings at Christmas and all the goodies inside.

The Stocking for Soldiers Mini Group meets monthly to make kits and prepare for the sew-in. Everyone is welcome to attend, contact Zeta Proskocil for further information.

Available at each guild meeting are kits with materials for making ten stockings. The kits may be taken home, completed and returned at the next meeting. Please sign kits out and in to help us keep track of them.

Once a year the Sinnissippi Quilters’ Guild has a sew-in where members come together to make stockings for the soldiers.  As we are making stockings, we are creating and renewing friendships. Please come join us.
