ABOUT STOCKINGS WITH CARE: Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Stockings with Care (SWC) was created by television casting executive Rosalie Joseph and producer Tom Fontana and grants the gift wishes of children while preserving the dignity of parents and caregivers. SWC 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 along with their wishes. Individual donors (aka "Santas"), corporations and a small army of volunteers come together to purchase and wrap the gifts. They are then delivered anonymously to the parents before the holidays, ensuring dignity and creating holiday magic. Last year over 2,000 children woke up to a miracle on Christmas morning. Since its inception in 1992, over 40,000 children have benefited from Stockings with Care.

This year's Holiday Drive is taking place the weekend of December 8 - 11.
