Past – Stockings For Kids – 20 Years of Giving.

The 20th Annual ‘Stockings For Kids’ Program begins November 5th.

The ‘Stockings For Kids’ program  is a fundraising initiative for Deltassist Family & Community Services, sponsored by the merchants of Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall, Century Group, The Delta Optimist and the South Delta Community.

The project makes an appeal to the public to help make a child’s Christmas morning, who may not otherwise have gifts under the tree. Generous individuals, groups, teams and businesses can adopt a stocking(s), fill it with appropriate new gifts, and return it to Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall, for delivery to Deltassist Family and Community Services, for distribution to registered children in need.

This program began in 1996 with 100 stockings and has steadily risen to 300 stockings sponsored. In honor of the 20th anniversary of this program, we are hoping the community can help us fill 350 stockings for children in Delta

Stockings may be picked up during our “Adopt a Stocking Day”, on Saturday, November 5th, 11 am – 2 pm, inside the mall, near Centre Stage Accessories. Participants will be asked to choose what age & gender they would like to fill a stocking for (example – Girl age 4 etc.), and return the filled stockings to The Smoke & Pop Shop, by Monday,
November 30th.   
Please note that this year the greatest need is for newborns and children 9 – 16 years old.

Those wishing to participate, but are unable to attend the “Stocking Adoption Day”, are invited to call the Mall Promotions Office (AFTER November 5th ) to make alternative pick up arrangements, at 604-943-1735.

Thank you to all of the past ‘Stockings For Kids’ supporters, and we wish you Happy Holidays.
