Skinner Realty is partnering with Soldier’s Angels this year to collect Christmas stockings for soldiers serving overseas, homeless veterans, and hospitalized veterans. Pick up a stocking, fill it with goodies and a nice card or note and I’ll come pick it up. (Soldier’s Angels is a 501(c)(3) organization so save your receipts and deduct them from your taxes.)
We collected over 150 lbs of presents for hospitalized/homeless veterans and active military! Thank you so much to ALL of you who mailed and dropped off stockings. They kept coming and coming and coming! We definitely plan to do it again next year – even bigger and better!
