Stuff the Sleigh, Inc. is in its thirteenth year of providing Christmas presents for foster children across the state.
The event was created in 2002, when a need arose to help foster children experience the Merry Christmas that they deserve. Many of these children, through no fault of their own, were unable to be at home with their family during the holidays, and were suffering in an unnecessary way by missing the child-like joy that comes with opening presents with a new, special toy meant just for them! Stuff the Sleigh, Inc. was created to bring back the magic of Christmas to these foster children.
Stuff the Sleigh, Inc. began as a small toy drive, aided by a Central Arkansas radio station. The first year, Stuff the Sleigh, Inc. collected toys for a DHS office in Little Rock. From there, Stuff the Sleigh, Inc. has grown into a toy drive that has reached 16 counties and over 3,000 foster children! However, the story doesn’t end there!
Stuff the Sleigh, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that reaches foster children of Central Arkansas and beyond with Christmas presents and much more! Through your help, Stuff the Sleigh can impact so many lives!
Jason and Alicen Bennett are the founders of Stuff the Sleigh, Inc. Alicen has worked in child welfare for over 10 years with foster children. Jason and Alicen hope to help foster children across the state!
