High Point University students stuffed 750 stockings for the Salvation Army’s annual Stuff a Stocking Campaign.
HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 4, 2019 – On Dec. 3, High Point University students gathered to make a difference for children in the local community by stuffing 750 stockings for the Salvation Army’s annual Stuff a Stocking Campaign.
“This time of year can be stressful for families, and it is fulfilling to be able to help alleviate some of that,” says Tucker Wilson, HPU’s Student Government Association service chair. “Helping to provide a few of life’s basic necessities through the Stuff a Stocking project spreads positivity and happiness around the holidays.”
Wilson joined student volunteers to fill stockings with toys, school supplies, toiletries and more. Each year, HPU’s Student Government Association invites students to support this initiative, which is part of the university’s annual 110,000 hours of community service.
“This is a time of family and community,” said Alex Bush, HPU’s Student Government Association president. “The event brings happiness and warmth to everyone involved and is our way of bringing joy to children in the local community.”
