Recognize Your Strength: First Annual "Stuff The Stocking" Drive Complete!


Founder Mary Considine of the Recognize Your Strength- RYS Fund smiles as she sits among many gifts she was able to purchase due to the generosity of so many donors in the community.


Mary says the first annual STUFF THE STOCKING drive is complete! Through this, she was able to provide 25 children who experience parental addiction with new clothes, new shoes, new winter gear, personal hygiene products, and some extra Christmas gifts based on their interests!


“We could not have had more success with this our first year! THANK YOU to all who helped make it a success: the donors, the caseworkers, the people who helped me shop, the people who helped me put all the gifts together, and the people who helped me deliver! It took a village to complete this project and I’m so proud. There are going to be a lot of happy kiddos this Christmas!”



Merry Christmas from RYS!

Committed to you and your future.

Community foundations exist to meet the philanthropic needs of the community and the philanthropic desires of local donors. When we connect those two, wonderful things happen to enhance the quality of life for all of us.​
