Benefit Singing For Stocking Full Of Love Is June 14

Thursday, June 5, 2014

A Catoosa County Stocking Full of Love Benefit Singing will be held on Saturday, June 14, from 6-8 p.m. at Mt. Peria Baptist Church, 341 Sparks St. in Ringgold. 

There will be free hot dogs, fixins' and admission.  Donations will be accepted for Stocking Full of Love. 

There will be performances by the Hullanders, Aimee Garner and Mt. Peria Men's Quartet. 

The Stocking Full of Love campaign has been around for over 20 years and provides Christmas for approximately 1,300-1,00 need children in Catoosa County each year.  The Sheriff's Office manages the program that is overseen by a board.  During Christmas, the Sheriff's Office collects toys and money to purchase more toys so that each child receives a bag of toys. 

"For the last several years donations have been declining and the price of toys has been increasing so the program has had to rely on reserve funds to meet the need," said Catoosa County Sheriff Gary Sisk.  "We have planned this fundraising event and are considering other fundraising events throughout the year in an effort to keep this much needed program alive.  Without your help this program is in jeopardy."
