Reformer Christmas Stocking

Thursday December 27, 2012

A little less than $7,000 to go for the 76th annual Reformer Christmas Stocking to reach this year’s goal of $90,000.

Anyone who hasn’t had a chance to donate and wishing to do so is encouraged to help us reach our goal.

Just looking out the window today helps us realize what an important program this has become for Brattleboro area families in need of assistance. As our newly-outfitted children head out to play in the snow, donors may take comfort in knowing they have helped to keep them warm in these cold winter months.

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 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 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.
