Stockings for Soldiers

Led by Shannon Hamilton, Autistic Support Teacher at the Bucks IU at Samuel Everitt, the Stockings for Soldiers cam­paign is enter­ing its 6th year! This amaz­ing pro­gram serves so many good pur­pos­es. As the name denotes, it ben­e­fits mem­bers of our mil­i­tary sta­tioned over­seas by send­ing them neces­si­ties and fun items — a lit­tle touch of car­ing from home while they are not here for the hol­i­days. For our Bucks IU stu­dents, indi­vid­u­als with com­plex needs, the oppor­tu­ni­ty to par­tic­i­pate in this allows them to prac­tice social skills, sort­ing, orga­niz­ing, tak­ing inven­to­ry, doing pack­ag­ing — all things that pro­vide great life-skills train­ing. What it means for these stu­dents to have a chance to ‘give back’ is evi­dent in their smiles, excite­ment, and ded­i­ca­tion to this program.

This year’s goal is 1,500 stockings!
