Empty storage fund exceeds $ 70,000

LUMBERTON – We have now passed the $ 70,000 mark in the Empty Stocking Fund and there is only one day left to donate.

Despite hitting our target of $ 65,300 on Friday, an additional $ 8,595 has been contributed over the past four days, bringing the new Fund total to $ 74,074.99. This is a few more steps to surpass last year’s fund which totaled $ 79,946.75, the third highest total on record.

Let us remind you of what Empty Stocking does. He provides a $ 50 voucher which can be redeemed at Roses in Lumberton or Roses Express in Fairmont. The fund is raised and distributed through a partnership between The Robesonian, Robeson County Department of Social Services and Lumber River United Way.

The funds raised so far are sufficient to serve 1,416 children in need across Robeson County.
