stocking the pantryStocking the Pantry has evolved over the years. It started in 2010, when my Christmas stockings started to become “a thing”. I decided they needed to give goodness as well as goodies. Each stocking = $2.50 donated to feed the hungry via our local Feed America food pantry. And Jane, who creates all the gorgeous nametags I show in my photography donates .50 per name tag!!!
