GREENSBORO, N.C. - The Salvation Army is holding its Annual Stuff A Stocking Campaign.

It's all about spreading holiday cheer and providing Christmas gifts to more than 20,000 children in need for the holiday season.

The Salvation Army kicked off the event on Thursday, placing stocking displays in participating locations across the Triad.

All you have to do is pick up an empty stocking at a participating location, shop, and return the stocking stuffed with goodies for children to enjoy on Christmas Day.

You can also contact a local Salvation Army Office and request stockings to fill.

The goal this year is to have 15,000 stockings filled and returned.

Last year, Stuff A Stocking and other Salvation Army campaigns helped more than 20,000 kids in the Triad area.

WFMY News 2 is a proud partner of the Stuff A Stocking campaign.

In the last 8 years, WFMY News 2 and the Salvation Army has stuffed more than 77,806 stockings for children.

The Stuff A Stocking Campaign runs from November 8th to December 10th.

Each Salvation Army has its own deadline for stocking return and gift distribution:

Burlington: December 10th
