Stockings of Literacy 2013

Fill someone’s stockings with… the gift of reading…

Do you really need all that nuts, fruits, and candy?!  Instead of spending your money on these – which are soon gone – consider giving a lasting gift, one that brings hope and that empowers local people to change their lives.  Stockings that are placed on the Rockingham County Literacy Project’s Stockings of Literacy tree enable people to learn to read, write, and do basic math.  The stockings also make it possible for people in the community to gain job skills, receive a GED certificate, or learn English.

By sponsoring a Christmas tree stocking, you can honor or memorialize special friends or family members.  The stockings are hung on the Christmas tree located in the window of the RCLP office, 705-A Washington Street, Eden.

“Your tax-deductible donations of $6 per stocking allow the Literacy Project to purchase books, software, and other materials, which are greatly needed,” says Jean Light Kinyon, Executive Director.  “Volunteer tutors use these materials to work with local adults and help them reach their educational goals.”

The person honored, or a family member of the person memorialized, will receive a card notifying them that a gift has been donated in his/her name.   Each gift is represented by a small red and white stocking with the honored or memorialized person’s name printed on the top.

To donate a gift by cash or check, download the form below.  You may bring it by our office or mail it to 705-A Washington Street, Eden, NC  27288.
