The Stocking Stuffer Service Project was a great success. It was a great success. We only had three stockings, but we ended up having so much stuff we had to get three more stockings.
We had so much stuff in fact, that oversize items were tied with Christmas ribbons to all the stockings. Not only that, we had some items left over to help pad other USC groups' stockings.
Even better, we had some clothes donated that, although they didn't fit in with the Stocking Stuffer project, were usable by Student Government (who sponsered the event) in a drive they are concurrently holding for a battered women's shelter.
Thank you all very much, particularly SCCCBL (the South Carolina Center for Children's Books and Literacy) for donating books and to James Carpenter, who is not in the program but is a friend of mine and gave us a stocking's worth of stuff when I mentioned the Drive to him. And of course, thanks to everyone who participated in smaller ways.
