The 76th annual Reformer Christmas Stocking has received $81,584.84 as of Monday afternoon. This year’s goal of $90,000 is just $8,415.16 away. Hopefully, before the week is over many donations will be received to put the Stocking over the top.

The Christmas Stocking Committee is thankful to all the donors that took the time to write checks, walk in the door with contributions and to donate online. This is an amazing community that really shows how much it cares for its children.

All donations go for the purchase of warm outer wear for children through age 15.

All contributions will continue to be listed daily in the Reformer as requested by the donor. Contributions may also be read on the Reformer website at www.reformer.com. A form may be found in the paper each day or find information on how to donate on our website.

Contributions, which are tax deductible, and the form, may be sent to: Reformer Christmas Stocking, P.O. Box 703, Brattleboro, VT 05302-0703.

Donors may use their credit cards on PayPal for contributions by visiting www.reformer.com/christmasstocking. Type how you would like your donation to be listed in the Reformer in the "Purpose" line.

Contributions may also be brought to the Reformer office at 62 Black Mountain Road on Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. (The office will not be open on Christmas Day.)
