Churches stuff 300 stockings for needy families
Webster, N.Y. - Two churches joined forces Sunday to round up Christmas gifts and household items for needy families.
Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Penfield and St. Martin Lutheran Church in Webster collected boxes full of toys, games, books, candy canes and more to fill 300 stockings.
Church members also made hats, scarves and gloves to fill the stockings, which will be donated to Community Lutheran Ministries.
Johanna Rehbaum, St. Martins pastor, said the goal was to double last years production.
This year, we started earlier, we pushed it harder, we raised more money, we talked to more community members, we found out more about the need in the Webster-Walworth area and also in the city, and we really came through, she said. We filled 300 stockings.
