Annual Mom's Stocking Charity Event
Every December The Grassroots Fitness Project hosts a wonderful charity event, Mom’s Stocking. For one special day The Grassroots Fitness Studio located in New York City’s upper-west side is transformed into Santa’s Workshop where busy little elves (you), collect and stuff hundreds of stockings to be collected by an important organization called, Women In Need. Our mission is to help bring a special Christmas morning to mother’s and children who are currently living in a shelter.
Ways to be a part of the event
Donate items or (actual) stockings!
Purchase and donate items of your choosing to be given as gifts and mail them to us. Items should be able to fit inside a christmas stocking and nothing is too small (or big!) when coming from the heart.
Make your own stocking!
If you prefer to stuff your own stocking full of special items that mean something to you, we are all about it! Have fun, shop and mail them to us before or during the event.
Join our mailing list to find out about upcoming events and come for some holiday cheer. Bring your kids and have them stuff a stocking for a deserving mother and child. We like to have our event be hands on so that we, as well as our children, can experience the act of giving.
All money donations will be used to purchase items to be put inside the Christmas stockings. All donations are through PayPal under firstname.lastname@example.org.
Checks are accepted made out to Mom's Christmas Stocking,
216 W. 89th St., Apt 2A,
New York, NY 10024
**As your gift is an in-kind donation, you should consult your accountant and complete Form 8283 if you intend to declare your gift for income tax purposes.
As we work to create light for others, we naturally light our own way.
