The Santa Maria Council was present in full force one night in December to help prepare Christmas stocking for our soldiers.  We are proud to work with a wonderful local charity, Stockings for Soldiers.  See below for the official statement from the Project Founder Judy Travis:

We’re so delighted to say – we have just completed our 13th Year of sending our special stockings to our wonderful troops so they will now that the Great Folks in Delaware and all over America are thinking of them.  THANKS so much, Everyone, for all your donations, contributions, hard work, good will, thoughtfulness, sense of humor and Volunteer Spirit.  We Did It Together   …

Our 13th Annual “Stockings For Soldiers” community project has sent almost 9,000 personalized stockings to our troops.  We’re so proud to know that so many of our brave members of the military will know how much we respect and appreciate all they are doing for our Great Country.

We sent 1,200 boxes, filled with all the great Goodies that you all donated for the stockings.  This year, our stockings went to our troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Kuwait, Africa, United Arab Emirates, Romania, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, South Korea and parts unknown.
