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.

As many of you know, our family has created stockings in the past to give to the homeless. We have done this every Christmas since George returned to heaven. Our annual project is in the works and we have chosen to use bags this year instead of stockings since there are great deals on some of the larger toiletries and they will last the homeless person receiving them much much longer. Monetary donations are also welcome for those of you who are not local but would still like to give. I am happy to look for the sales and put the donations to great use, making the most of each penny.
For those who want to donate in memory or honor of someone please send us information about that person so we can include it in the cards sent to these people. These notes have so much meaning to the individuals getting the gifts and helps them to know someone out there cares. Sharing loved ones with others also helps to let others know how wonderful the person is and if it is in memory, it lets that person live on through such a great project. Emails with your loved ones information can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
This has been so successful and a wonderful way to make something good out of a sad situation. George's siblings love to do this in his memory each year. Below you can find a list of items we will need again this year. We will take travel size items as well as regular sized ones, we even out each bag. Due to rising amounts of homeless individuals in Camden we may have to actually make close to 150 bags. Please remember that homelessness does not discriminate so we we need items for men, women, and children.
