Reformer Christmas Stocking

Saturday December 8, 2012

The 76th annual Reformer Christmas Stocking has been listing donations for a couple weeks now and appears to be off to a good start. With today’s donations of $2,105, the total so far stands at $26,392.55, but with a goal of $90,000, it does have quite a way to go.

We would like to ask that while you are busily preparing for your holiday celebrations that you take a minute to write a check to help the children in need of winter coats meet their dreams. Then sit back and watch the total climb toward its goal knowing you were able to help.

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

All contributions will 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.
