For more than 20 years the City of Lake Oswego has participated in Fill a Stocking. This is a county-wide event and the premise is easy.
A large group of volunteers hand makes stockings that are available at City Hall. Simply drop by 380 A Avenue to collect a stocking. Then fill it up with much-needed items and special gifts. Then return it to City Hall once it is filled. These stockings are distrubuted throughout Clackamas County and are given to families, seniors, teens, and the homeless. For many, it is the only holiday gift that they will receive.
The city is also accepting donations of coats, gloves, food, and new unwrapped toys. For additional information, please call the Public Information Office at 503-635-0257.
I know it is not yet Christmas or Hanukkah, but if you are like me, you’re a planner. The holidays are hectic and I like to get ahead with some proper prior planning.
Thank you for helping those in need,
