Fill-a-Stocking Application Deadline is December 8th

2015 Toy Run was a rainy day and many braved the weather for the cause.


The Jasper Lions Club Fill-A-Stocking program provides Christmas presents for children in Pickens County. Multiple gifts are given to each of our community's needy children with a combined value of at least $50. This is accomplished through generous donations and the club's fundraising activities.

Below are some of the requirements:

• Fill-A-Stocking is not a government-sponsored program. This project depends solely on the donations from our community, therefore we have limited resources and cannot “custom shop” for everyone; however, every effort will be made to provide the items asked for by each child.

• You may only request gifts for children who live in your home full time, and you must have primary legal custody of all of the children listed on the form.

Only children ages 14 and under who are full time residents of Pickens County qualify for this program.

• Please fill out the form legibly and completely using blue or black ink. This form must be signed, and a copy of your photo ID must be attached as well.
