2011 Little Red Stocking Campaign…

It’s that time of year again! As a long standing tradition with Children's Home Society we will once again be selling our Little Red Stockings across the State to raise funds for our statewide programming here at CHS. Stockings will be available to purchase for $1.00 at participating businesses and retailers across West Virginia.

While observing holiday traditions make the Little Red Stocking a part of yours by purchasing a stocking and making a contribution to vulnerable children across this State. We will not let the children in need be forgotten—and no gift is too small. Caring for others should be a tradition for us all during the holiday season…and always.

This year’s Little Red Stocking Campaign will run for 31 days from November 25—December 24. So please keep Children's Home Society, and the children who call us “home” during the holidays, in mind when you see a red stocking at a retailer near you.

For questions about the LRS Campaign please Carna Metheney-White 304-485-0650 or
