We are now in full force collecting items to create 100 stockings to send to Camden for the homeless. I had posted a need for items on Freecycle and got a pretty good response. The gentleman from our church who handles this ministry said he thought it was a good idea and gave me a general count of 80-100 so I want to shoot for 100 because I don't want to leave anyone without a stocking.
If you are interested in helping with this project and have some items laying around, I'd gladly come get them or put them to good use if you would like to mail them to us. Below is the items I happen to need.
Hotel/travel size hygiene products.
Fabric to make stockings
Anything else you think we could use to fill them (dollar vouchers for McDonalds/fastfood place)
If you happen to have someone in heaven that you would like to remember or someone fighting some disease, and you feel compelled to help with this project we can add their name to the tags I plan to put on the stockings. These people will not get anything for the holidays and the more we get to fill these stockings the better. Please prayerfully consider supporting our efforts. I know George is smiling down on us as we do this project in his memory for the holiday season, this is really what it is all about. You don't have to have money to change the world or make an impact in the lives of others!
George's Guardian's of Grace Projects
Stocking project is now in full force collecting donations. We have a list of the items we can use. You can also choose to sponsor a stocking in memory or honor of someone else. We will include a paragraph or two in the cards we place in the stockings to let the recipient know about the person that means so much to you. Our paypal account is posted on this page and ready to take donations. Email us for a list of items needed or with any questions or information you would like included on a sponsored stocking/donation.

Here is a link to a video tribute that was made by Richard's dad in memory of George. Get out your tissues!
We Finally have footage from the service up and running:
It is in 4 sections running about 17 mins each. If you were unable to attend, you can now see what you missed. We were so blessed to have everyone there with us in person and in spirit!
