Yandle Wins Empty Stocking Fund Contest
Updated: Dec 27, 2022
The Elizabethtown-White Lake Chamber of Commerce has announced the winner of the Christmas tree decorating contest. Yandle and Son Small Engine Repair won the competition with their red and green classic car themed tree.
The business has won the competition two years in a row.
The purpose of the event was to raise money for the Empty Stocking Fund (ESF). Local businesses in the area paid a small fee to enter into the tree decorating contest and all proceeds went to the ESF. The contest raised $165 this year.
ESF brings joy to the lives of disadvantaged children by providing toys and gifts during the holiday season and other core essential supplies throughout the year to support positive social and emotional development and academic success.
Through relationships with wholesale distributors and in-kind donations from trusted corporations, the ESF acquires brand new items in sufficient quantities to offer a variety of age- and gender-appropriate holiday gift choices and core school supplies.
It's not too early to begin preparing for next year. If you or your business would like to participate in raising money for the Christmas 2023 Empty Stocking Fund, visit the webpage at The Empty Stocking Fund – Bring Joy!.
