Stocking Stuffers

Friday, December 9th, 2011

Stacked and ready, these handmade caps……

get stuffed into these handmade stockings,

for a good cause of course!

On Wednesday, December 7, 2011, the QIAD Charity Quilters teamed up with students from Community Christian School of San Marcos to stuff Christmas stockings for donation to the Women’s Resource Center in Oceanside.

The Charity Quilters that made this possible: Jan Thompson (photographer), Marlys Baye, Helen Dember, Nan Hallbick, Rosie McCoy, Claire McKarns, Shirely Riley, Marsha Terhall, and Betty Wagner.

The students started their stocking project in October of this year and were required to make two stockings each for donation. Their teacher, Suzanne Law, provided instruction and help as they worked on their projects. There were a total of 32 festive stockings the students made. The Charity Quilters and students donated lotions and potions, combs and candy for stuffing. The stockings were brimming over when they were finished. It is a wonderful time of giving support to an organization that provides so much for women in the north county area.

Just a little more, it will fit!

Thanks to the students who participated:

Brett, Sean, Dante, Kylie, Kimberly, Bella, Emily, Olivia, and Naomi.

The mission of the Women’s Resource believes that all people should be free from the crimes of domestic violence and sexual assault. Those who are victims of these crimes should have access to services that assist them in recovering from their trauma and moving forward in their lives. Women’s Resource Center is dedicated to providing the highest quality supportive services, counseling, shelter and education to women, men and children involved in or threatened by domestic violence or sexual assault. Our goals are to inform, educate, support, advocate, heighten public awareness, provide short-term shelter, provide long-term residential shelter, and reinforce the fact that domestic violence is a crime.
