Who we are...

The Empty Stocking Fund is one of the oldest newspaper-sponsored charities in Canada, it all began in 1912... We take great pride in what the Empty Stocking Fund stands for, the mission has remained unchanged - to raise funds to ensure that all children in the Saint John and surrounding area have a joyful holiday season.  More information on the About page!












How we do it...

We raise funds through various activities including an eight hour telethon when children from throughout the community perform holiday carols to raise funds for those less fortunate.  It is with the support of our sponsors and private donations that we are able to reach the goal of making the holiday season a happy time by assisting families and building a stronger community.
