Empty Stocking Club
Many volunteer 'elves' are needed for the annual Empty Stocking Club Toy giveaway event which will take place December 13-15, 2022 at the Alliant Energy Center Exhibition Hall (1919 Alliant Energy Center Way, Madison). Opportunities include setting up the toys, check-in/greeting, shopping with clients, retrieving toys, check-out, etc. Note: 12/13 is set up only and no families will be present.
For more than 100 years, the Empty Stocking Club, the charitable arm of the Wisconsin State Journal, has served its mission of providing new toys for children in Dane County during the holidays. Thanks to the generous contributions of businesses, friends and neighbors across our region, hundreds of thousands of toys have arrived under the Christmas tree for children who might otherwise not have had a gift. Now, thanks to a partnership with Madison Reading Project, children can also get a new book with their toy!
Thanks in advance for your generous gift of time to help make the holidays brighter for others!
