Empty Stocking Fund Toy Drive

The Upson County Ministerial Association is currently preparing for the 75th Annual Empty Stocking Fund, a program aimed at providing food and gifts to families in need during the holiday season. This year, the ESF has approximately 175 families in need.

Any individual or group can help by sponsoring a family. The ESF provides food, a new toy, and a clothing voucher for each child.

For more information, to sponsor a family, or to volunteer, contact director Mandy Jones at mandyjean22@gmail.com or Carla Brown at carlakbrown@gmail.com. Volunteers will begin packing boxes on Dec. 9 and applicant families can pick up boxes on Dec. 18 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Contributions can also be sent by mail to the Empty Stocking Fund, Upson County Ministerial Association, P.O. Box 375, Thomaston, Ga. 30286.
