Stuff a Stocking

This project is a unique opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child in Russia, Abkhazia, Moldova, or Ukraine. You can be a part of it! In order to offset the increasing expense and red tape involved in importing gifts and aid, gifts are purchased and stockings filled on location.

Across Russia and Abkazia, millions of children are in crisis and have never heard of the Lord Jesus Christ. Share JOY this Christmas through the Stuff a Stocking project, reaching one child at a time for eternity. Since 2002, SOAR has used the Stuff a Stocking project to share the Gospel with needy Russian and Akhazian children at Christmas, and provide a doorway for local Russian churches to begin and cultivate relationships with orphanages in their region. In response to the Russia-Ukraine Crisis, SOAR is expanding the project into Moldova and Ukraine to minister to Ukrainian refugee children.
