Created by ABC/Touchstone Casting VP Rosalie Joseph and TV producer Tom Fontana (Oz), Stockings with Care "grants the gift wishes of children while preserving the dignity of parents or caregivers," according to press notes. In its fifteenth year, Stockings With Care works with various agencies that help families in crisis. The children make their wish lists. Social workers provide the name, gender, and age of each child. Individual donors, corporations, and a small army of volunteers come together to purchase and wrap the gifts (This year on December 14, 2006) . They are then delivered to the parents so that they can personally present the gifts to their children. Last year 3,000 children woke up to a miracle on Christmas morning. Through Stockings with Care, each child found the gift they had wished for and each parent shared their joy.
