Spreading The Joy: Bode won two holiday stockings from Mountain Hardware.  He donated one of the stockings, which stands nearly twice as tall as he is, to the High Desert Homeless Shelter.

In the spirit of giving each year Mountain Hardware in Wrightwood holds a drawing for one child to win two Giant 7 foot Stockings. One stocking is intended for the winner to enjoy. While the other stocking, in the spirit of giving, may be donated to a local organization or to a less fortunate family so that they too may share in the holiday season. The drawing was held in mid-December. This year’s winner of the two giant stockings was Bode Walczynski. Bode lives in Wrightwood and is 11years old. He is a 6th grade student at Pinon Mesa Middle School.

Bode chose to give one of his stockings he won to the High Desert Homeless Shelter in Victorville. He has been a volunteer since the early age of 2 when his mom first started to bring him to the shelter to help. Bode presented the Giant Stocking to the High Desert Homeless Shelter on December 23, 2022.
