A huge THANK YOU to The Bothell and Kirkland Knights of Columbus, Dan O’Brien and Trudy Bly for this beautiful hand made Patriotic Quilt to be raffled with the proceeds going to our Christmas Stocking Program. Thank you!!
Christmas is a perfect time to let wounded warriors know how much you recognize their daily sacrifices. It means a lot to them. Heartbeat’s Christmas Stocking℠ program can help.
For Heartbeat’s Christmas Stocking℠ program, Project Linus donates large, beautiful, homemade stockings to be filled. Volunteers fill the stockings with “goodies and gadgets” donated by the community and are then delivered to wounded warriors in different units.
Heartbeat volunteers deliver these wonderful stockings to wounded warriors in military units in WA state. We make Christmas stockings for the wounded in the Warrior Transition Battalion, Madigan Army Medical Center and other units.
One warrior, who had recently returned from Iraq in December 2008, shared how much it meant. With tears in his eyes he said, “Thank you for not forgetting us.”
Every year, Heartbeat asks individuals and organizations to deliver stocking-stuffer donations to one of our convenient drop-off locations.
One business has chosen to get everyone in their offices involved by putting together an encouragement to give and raise the bar for goodies and gadgets to go into our Christmas stockings for wounded warriors. You might want to use this as a model for your community! No amount is too small or too large. Thank you to everyone supporting this program! You are making a difference!
Donors can also mail items or monetary donations to Heartbeat. Our volunteers get together to stuff and decorate the Christmas stockings with your generous donations for our heroes.
