The Empty Stocking Fund (ESF) has partnered with non-profits in the Pikes Peak Region for over 30 years to help community members in crisis and assist others in reaching self-sufficiency. The Marian House will be an ESF recipient for the 16th year in a row. ADD STAFF, Wells Fargo Bank, The Gazette, and the El Pomar Foundation cover all the administrative costs of the campaign, allowing 100% of every dollar donated to go directly to the services provided to people in need. Furthermore, every dollar donated to ESF grows up to 45.3 percent thanks to matching funds by the Bruni Foundation and the El Pomar Foundation.
This year’s campaign kicks off November 26 and runs through January 15. There are many ways to contribute to the Empty Stocking Fund and support our partners throughout the Pikes Peak Region. The quickest way is to make a contribution on fillanemptystocking.org. There are also many fun events and activities throughout the holiday season that support this community effort.
Look for more information and stories from each of the partner agencies in the Gazette newspaper throughout the campaign. To make a contribution, find out how to donate through upcoming events, or learn more about ESF visit fillanemptystocking.org.
