Stockings for Soldiers: Home


Stockings for Soldiers 

This is our second year collecting Stockings for Soldiers for the holiday season with local funeral homes in the Grove City area.  The stockings are donated to homeless veterans in Erie and Pittsburgh.   Last year we were able to fill 108 stockings for our veterans!   
The funeral homes will provide the stockings -- so in order to help us know how many to request, please fill out this form.   We will contact you via email when the stocking is ready to be picked up.   

Please try to fill your stockings half or 3/4 of the way full and return them to the library by December 13th

If you would like to donate individual items, that’s great too!  There is a collection box in the library lobby.

Items requested:  

socks, hats, gloves, decks of playing cards, word search books, pens, batteries (AA and AAA), travel size toiletries (shampoo, body wash, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, hand lotion, body lotion, small comb or brush, Chapstick, mini Kleenex packs (1 per stocking), small wet wipes pack, travel size band-aids)

PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE  gum, mints, candy, food or any items not listed above.

Contact Conni Shaw if you have questions/comments!
