Conyers-Rockdale Empty Stocking Fund Program
As they have done for many years, local Rotarians from the Rockdale Rotary & Conyers Rotary Clubs will once again be partnering with Rockdale Emergency Relief (RER) during the winter holiday season to make life a bit brighter for those in need! With their help, the annual Conyers-Rockdale Empty Stocking Fund Event helps to make the holidays a very special time for many children and their families right here in our local community! A cherished annual tradition among local Rotarians, the Conyers-Rockdale Empty Stocking Fund Event has been designed as a fun, hands-on way for volunteers to bring joy to children in the community. Every dollar raised for the Empty Stocking Fund stays in Rockdale County and is used to purchase gifts for children in Rockdale County whose families are unable to provide gifts to celebrate the holidays with them.
