Abbott House

stockings filled with heartwarming messages from members, handmade friendship bracelets, sweets, and toys


What's the Abbott House?

The Abbott House is a childcare agency located in Irvington, New York, helping homeless, disabled, neglected, foster kids and families. We reached out to them in late October and began preparing holiday surprises for the kids.

What were inside the stockings?

Each holiday surprise was fitted inside a mini stocking, containing chocolates, candies, temporary tattoos, a card designed and signed by one of our members, and two friendship bracelets made by our members.

What's so fun about it?

Each and every one of the bracelets we put in the stockings were handmade by one of our members. It's always fun to make small crafts like bracelets together, especially when you are doing it for something good. With music and food in the background, the Abbott House project was not only for a good cause but also a team bonding moment.
