Christmas Stocking Stuffing Day

Today we had the Christmas Stockings stuffed in the Large Hall.  Barb DeGaramo has been the Coordinator of the charitable event for several years.  The items that have been donated by Winter Ranchers are put into categories and spread across the tables.  Once everything is in all the stockings, they are sorted into age groups and packed up for donation to the Litttle Mexico section of McAllen.  These will be given to the children on December 16th as a part of the Children’s Posada.

The Stuffing process begins!

They had quite a load of stuff to take down to ARISE today for the Posada and it warms the heart just to think of the joy this project brings to the children of that neighborhood.
