Holiday season difficult for many families

December 4, 2018

The 24th year of the Empty Stocking Fund continues with a $100,000 goal that won’t be met without you. Funds stay in Ector County and go to help needy families through the Empty Stocking Fund, an annual fundraising effort by the Odessa American and The Salvation Army. Empty Stocking Funds go for a good holiday meal and small gifts under the tree.

Donations to the Empty Stocking Fund may be mailed or delivered to the Salvation Army Community Center, 810 E. 11th St., 79761. Call the Salvation Army at 332-0738.

The Empty Stocking Fund was created by the Odessa American in 1995 and has raised more than $1.8 million.
