As much as I hate to admit it, Christmas is just around the corner. It seems like yesterday that it was summertime! Before you know it, Thanksgiving will have come and gone and the craziness of shopping, wrapping gifts, baking, hosting parties and running ourselves a bit ragged will ensue. But in the midst of all the hustle and bustle, there is one thing that I always look forward to. Somewhere along the line of Christmas’ craziness, a spirit of giving sweeps over the nation. It becomes a little less about ME and a little more about OTHERS. Then there are worthy causes that groups of people take up to show love and selflessness in a very special way, and all because of Christmas.
One such program is that of “Stockings for Soldiers.” This heartwarming program is led locally by a couple in Rehoboth Beach. As you might imagine, they provide gifts and goodies to soldiers that have served our country and begin as early as this month, collecting and assembling the stockings. We contacted Carl Sheran, one of the coordinators of this group, and here is what he had to say about Stockings for Soldiers.
