ESF just short of goal

With their toy delivery deadline just four days off, Empty Stocking Fund stalwarts Glenn and Vicki Forsyth are still scrambling to gather gifts and monetary donations. ’We are on track with toys. Rock Springs Church really came through for us there. I have a trailer that is stacked full they collected,’ Glenn reported. Vicki had a group of nurse practitioner candidates who need volunteer hours at their barn over the weekend helping to sort items for delivery on Saturday, Dec. 23. The Empty Stocking Fund, started generations ago by the Jaycees, is thought to be the longest running charity in the community. It provides toys for needy children on Christmas morning. ’We are about $2500 short on our monetary goal but we will make it. Anything that we get that we don’t spend, we will save for Black Friday toy shopping for next year’s kids,’ Glenn added. If you feel inclined to help this Christmas season, contact Glenn at 770-468-1253 or Vicki at 770-584-6096.
