Stockings for the Troops
November 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Make stockings and fill them with love, hope and supplies for our active military
Together, let’s show love and support for our active service members and their families this holiday season. First, we’ll learn about both empathy and perseverance, and how important these traits are in the military and in our own daily lives – get ready for a mini boot camp! Then, we’ll work hard to make and fill holiday stockings (with kid-friendly sewing) for the troops to show how much we appreciate them and all they do for our country.

Social Cause: Supporting Our Troops & Veterans
