Join the KOR Properties Stocking Drive!
How to be a Santa’s Helper:
Click on the link HERE to sign up to stuff a stocking.
The budget for each stocking should be $10-$12. Empty stockings are available for $1 at Dollar Tree and other dollar stores. Directions on what to put in the stockings are provided below.
Check out the video below for all our tips and tricks. We have also included photos of stockings we have stuffed to help give you inspiration!
Stocking items should be new and unwrapped. Target, Dollar Tree, and Michael’s have great stocking stuffers in their dollar sections, but they sell out quickly… so stock up early! Label your stocking with the age group and gender so we can make sure they are delivered to the right child. Tie on gift tags are a great way to label stockings!
KOR Properties has been supporting the JaKelle’s Christmas Box toy drive for the past six years by recruiting friends, clients, churches, and businesses to contribute stockings filled with small toys, art supplies, candy, and stuffed animals. When we founded KOR Properties, we wanted to create a project that would support the children in our community. We were grateful to connect with Helen’s Hope Chest and designed the Santa’s Helpers Stocking Drive so that anyone could participate regardless of age or physical ability. It is a great project to do with friends and I think everyone enjoys making the stockings as much as the children enjoy receiving them!
