Empty Stocking FundEach year around August the Gainesville Jaycees start to think about Christmas. It seems like an odd time to think about a Holiday, but since 1955 the Gainesville Jaycees have been providing Christmas to needy children in the Hall County Community. The Jaycees in the past collected money on the streets of Gainesville, but as of late have been sending out donation letters and selling raffle tickets to raise the funds to provide Christmas to over 400+ children in Hall County. Once these funds are collected the Jaycees meet on a Saturday at Wal-Mart at 6:00 a.m. and buy the gifts for the children who have been chosen though our special partnerships.
This project not only provides Christmas to kids who otherwise may not have a Christmas, but we have found that this experience really makes Christmas even more special for the Jaycees that get involved.
