They are asking anyone who can to get a Christmas stocking and fill it with goodies for the home-bound and nursing home residents. Some suggested items for the stockings include lap blankets, socks, hats, scarves, gloves, non-perishable pre-packaged snacks, activity books, pens, lotions and body wash.

The Christmas stockings can be dropped off at the hospital, 200 S. Geneva, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. They will be collecting the stockings through Dec. 17. For more information, call Chris Curtis at 254-559-2241.
