About The Program

What is Kernersville Christmas Stocking?

 The Kernersville Christmas Stocking is a not for profit fund based entirely on donations. The fund provides gift certificates to Kernersville families in need during the Christmas season. These gift certificates enable the parents to buy Christmas gifts and Christmas dinner for their family. This is the only Christmas organization that is dedicated exclusively to the residents of Kernersville.

Who sponsors the Kernersville Christmas Stocking?

It is co-sponsored by The Kernersville News and Kernersville Moravian Church.

 Where does all the donated money go?

100% of the money, as well as any other types of donations, are used for the families. None of these donations are used for overhead or administrative expenses.

How do the families apply and qualify for the Christmas Stocking?

Referrals can be made by teachers or guidance counselors at the schools, Crisis Control, or area churches. Additionally, interviews are publicized in the Kernersville News, posters in retail stores and word of mouth.  The families are interviewed to verify:
