The Fannin County Empty Stocking Program, Inc. was founded in 1996. The organization is a volunteer board of directors that assists the children of Fannin County year-round and especially at Christmas.
This process is a year-long endeavor which begins by overseeing all fundraising, operation our own thrift store, the application process for families in need, shopping for the children's requests, and the distribution of these items to the children/families before Christmas.
