Founded by Television Producer TOM FONTANA and TV Casting Executive ROSALIE JOSEPH, STOCKINGS WITH CARE grants the gift wishes of children while preserving the dignity of parents or caregivers. In its 13th year, Stockings With Care works with various agencies that help families in crisis. The children make their wish lists. Social workers provide SWC with the name, gender, and age of each child. Individual donors, corporations, and a small army of volunteers come together to purchase and wrap the gifts. They are then delivered to the parents so that they can personally present the gifts to their children. The parents are empowered, dignity is maintained and holiday magic is created. Last year 3,000 children woke up to a miracle on Christmas morning. Through Stockings with Care, each child found the gift they had wished for and each parent shared their joy.
