Empty Stocking Project
The Empty Stocking Project is the largest and most widely recognized program of the Saratoga County Children’s Committee. There are hundreds of children living within Saratoga County who are in need of assistance yearly, but the holiday season can be the most trying time of year for parents and caregivers. Our mission is to embody the holiday spirit by helping to provide these families with a joyous holiday. Each year, we are able to provide 900+ children living in Saratoga County with a wonderful holiday season.
The project begins early in September, when agencies and schools connect with the parents and caregivers of those looking for assistance. The Saratoga County Children’s Committee then matches "Friends" - community sponsors - with individual children and families.
The "Friend" - generous and loyal individuals, corporate and community sponsors are provided with a wish-list and basic necessities of their child or family.
Without the generous support of those who offer to sponsor a child, the Empty Stocking Project would not be possible. Our Friends are the heart of the Empty Stocking Project and the reason it is successful every single year.
Please consider making the holiday season memorable for a child by sponsoring a child. Click here to find out more information about sponsoring a child.
