Empty Stocking Fund in Amarillo

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Empty Stocking Fund in AmarilloThere are too many people each year that truly need the help of the Empty Stocking Fund in Amarillo, and this year is no exception.  Each story is unique in its very own way.  Therefore, when I came across one story in particular, I felt the need to mention it in my blog.

Two sisters from Amarillo, Texas are in need this holiday season.  Health problems plague them both, and it is up to them to take care of one another.  One sister is bound to her wheelchair while the other is no longer able to work due to circulatory problems and diabetes. 

One sister's medication runs over $100 a month and the other sister's medication runs just over $50 a month.  These two combined take a big chunk out of their Social Security.  And, since they don't have any family in Amarillo, they are completely dependent on each other for everything.  Once their monthly bills are paid, there is very little left over.

These sisters are known as Empty Stocking Fund Recipients #15 and for Christmas this year, these two sisters are only asking for winter clothes and food.

If you are interested in helping these sisters or any other needy families this holiday season, you can send your donations to the Empty Stocking Fund at PO Box 2091, Amarillo, TX 79166 or bring it in person to the Empty Stocking Fund coordinator herself, Susie Self, at the Globe-News building, 900 South Harrison Street.  If you would like to donate your gently used items, you can drop them off at the Downtown Women's Center Thrift City, 600 S. W. 10th Ave.
