Donations are starting to fall off for the 76th annual Reformer Christmas Stocking. With just a trickle showing up each day, it is beginning to look like this year’s goal of $90,000 may not be reached.

That has not happened in at least the past 30 years, so the Stocking Committee is confident that somehow, some way the money will arrive to help the children continue to be outfitted with warm, winter coats.

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.
