To keep up a longtime Ronceverte Tradition, the Ronceverte Volunteer Fire Department will hold the annual Christmas Stocking Giveaway on Dec. 24 at 2 p.m. at Island Park (with Santa). This year we filled 1,000 stockings with oranges, apples, cracker jacks, candy bars, soda, popcorn balls, and of course, a small toy.
Tentatively, the event will be a drive-thru giveaway like last year due to Covid numbers. Cars will enter on Monroe Avenue and drive-thru to line up in double lines in front of Shelter #1 then exit onto Rt. 219.
Lineup will start at 1:30 p.m. Every person in the cars will receive a stocking. This is subject to change if Covid numbers improve. If so, we will line up as in the past so the children can get out to see Santa and enjoy Christmas music and some hot chocolate.
This is made possible by community donations and fundraising by the Ronceverte Fire Department. If you would like to donate to this cause, you can bring donations to Peoples Bank in Ronceverte or mail it to: RVFD Stocking Fund, PO Box 35, Ronceverte, WV 24970.
