Making Spirits Bright - Empty Stocking Fund

esf smThe YMCA’s Empty Stocking Fund has been helping make Christmas Merry & Bright for children and families of Cabarrus County for 81 years! We help supply children and families with Christmas gifts and money for heating for their homes. How you can help:

Give. Bring in unwrapped Christmas gift and place the gift in one of barrels set out in November or take a stocking off one our Christmas trees and shop for an entire family!

Donate. If you would like to donate monetarily, please make out a check to the Cannon Memorial YMCA, and we can be the elves and do the shopping for you! You may also write a check for the YMCA’s & CCM’s Fuel fund to help with heating costs for homes, by December 6.

Volunteer Your Time. Sign up to work one of our interview times at one of our 3 branches, to gather information directly from the families, come in and pack Christmas gifts for families, hand out gifts or help with set-up and tear down.
