Each year during the Christmas season, Birmingham Baptist Association offers you and your church or group ways to share hope with others…
Christmas stockings for Birmingham children
BBA churches work with dozens of area service agencies to provide stockings full of gifts for needy children in our community. We receive requests for thousands of stockings each year, and the requests always outnumber the donations. Help us change that this year!
If you choose this project, stockings should be approximately fifteen to eighteen inches long, and six to seven inches wide. They can be homemade or bought. Fill them with nuts, candy, coloring books, crayons, or small toys (no fruit, please). They do not need to be elaborate. If a choice is to be made, use less expensive stockings and put more inside. Please attach a label (download/print sheet of four labels here) to the stocking specifying whether it is for a boy or girl. Please print boy labels on blue card stock and girl labels on pink card stock so that it is easily identifiable when it is time to sort the stockings. Also note the age:
