2020 will mark our 10th and final season with stocking deliveries to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center and the Mack Bayou Infusion Clinic in Santa Rosa Beach; both of which will be delivered curbside due to Covid-19 precautions. The Stocking Project has eased the difficulties of navigating cancer at Christmastime. In 2011, Taira Baughman invited us to help with grassroots efforts for The Stocking Project. The decade-long project resulted in more than 35,000 stockings donated and delivered nationwide. Our local volunteers have delivered a legacy of stockings, music, and hope to people battling cancer. The Stocking Project is sure to remain in the hearts of givers and receivers.
