SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — One of the joys of Christmas is waking up to a stocking filled with gifts. As a child, it's part of the wonder and magic of Santa.
Even as we grow up, many people keep the tradition alive, simply because a Christmas stocking touches the child in all of us.
And it's from that attachment, that an act of kindness was born.
As a teenager, Jane Wesley Brooks began filling Christmas stockings for the homeless, and delivering them to those on the streets each Christmas Eve.
Over 40 years, she has passed out thousands of stockings filled with caps, mittens, socks, shampoos, magazines, and even playing cards. Any small item that is new, clean and useful for those without a home.
We surprised Jane with 10News Leadership Award.
She accepts any appropriate new item at her law office all year long. Magazines are the only exception. They can be gently read prior to delivery.
