The 25th year of the Empty Stocking Fund ends in less than 10 days and it is going to take generous donations like that of a $5,000 Wood Family Foundation donation on Tuesday to help us meet the $100,000 goal.

Funds stay in Ector County and help needy families who are struggling to provide a Merry Christmas for their children. These families can be helped 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., or the Odessa American, 700 N. Grant, Suite 800. ZIP codes for both are 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 $1.9 million. Donate online.
