Empty stocking project benefits more than 900 kids

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – The goal of the Empty Stockings Project is to fill stockings with everything from toys and games to clothes.

The Saratoga County Children’s Committee puts on the event. More than 900 kids up to 18 years old will benefit this year.

Different agencies and schools helped by notifying the committee about children in need. Then they match the child with a sponsor to fulfill their holiday wish list.

But the kids don’t know they are in the program. They think all the toys are coming from either Santa or their parents.
