For more than a decade our clubs have prepared and sent holiday stockings for troops serving our nation overseas.
"Operation Yellow Ribbon" is an official 501(c)(3) non-profit registered with the state of NJ. The organization consists of all volunteers, and they show support for our United States Military Forces serving in the Middle East, including Iraq, Afghanistan and those supporting Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Inherent Resolve.
One of Operation Yellow Ribbon's major focuses is organizing and collecting donated U.S. Troop supplies and goodies to send to our brave Heroes deployed in harm's way in the Middle East.
Our clubs always do an outstanding job by filling holiday stockings with items and love!
You can begin this project at any time, and stockings are delivered to Headquarters in the fall. Stockings should be labeled "male," "female," or "gender neutral." The cost to fill the stocking should be about $20-$25 to completely fill it to the top.
Items to fill the stockings are listed in the flyer below. We also request a donation of $2 per stocking to help with shipping and delivery.
If you or your club prefers to give a monetary donation instead of making the Christmas Stockings, any amount is deeply appreciated. Please make your check payable to NJSFWC, earmark it “Operation Holiday Stocking,” and send it to Headquarters.
New Jersey News 12 ran a video piece about our project in November, 2018. Click here to see it on News 12 NJ.
