Summary: Provide Christmas Stockings to Elementary School Kids
This is a continuation project that the Arlington Sunrise Club has been doing for several years.
The Sunrise Club has provided support to Thornton Elementary and Anderson Elementary Schools in a variety of ways, but the most beneficial and meaningful support is through the Christmas Stocking Project. Both schools are located in depressed areas of Arlington and most kids come from minority families. The total enrollment for both schools is approximately 1100. Funding for this project allows our club to provide Christmas stockings to each student as well as holiday food baskets to a number of families. Selected club members purchase "stuffings" for the stockings and baskets and then the club members assemble to stuff the stockings. Just prior to Christmas vacation, club members meet at the two schools to give each student a stocking. This is a very popular project with our club members and most participate. Funding for this project would be required and dispersed in December 2021.
This project is "Completed". This means the project has been implemented and the report was accepted by the district leadership. The project will stay listed on this website as a testimony of the achievements of the project partners.
