The Stockings for Recruits program was started to bring joy to the local US Coast Guard recruits who are participating in training during the holiday season. The stockings are handcrafted and stuffed by members of the Spouses Club and given out on Christmas Eve with cookies and hot cocoa. Holiday cheer fills the room as the recruits enjoy a break from training to read holiday cards and special notes from family members, local school children, and other donors. Also included are gift cards to local shops and eateries, hygiene items, uniform items and a fun t-shirt to commemorate they made it through boot camp during the holidays.
Please consider donating to this fundraiser! Proceeds are used to provide recruit stockings on Christmas Eve as well as to help fund our scholarship program for Coast Guard dependents.
