Making the Holiday Season Brighter for Seniors
The holiday season is a time for being with loved ones, for sharing warm moments and for helping others that are less fortunate. It can unfortunately also be a lonely and sad time for some, and seniors are definitely vulnerable to this. They often have little or no family and often also live on a very modest and limited income so they do not have the means for little extras. They aren’t able to enjoy the warmth and magic of the holidays as they should. Giving back to others during this festive time of year is heartwarming and rewarding and it’s one of the main themes of the holidays.
Stocking Stuffers For Seniors Program
A great way to give back is through London Drugs’ program Stocking Stuffers for Seniors. London Drugs is thrilled to be bringing back this annual tradition that originated with a single store in 2015. The original campaign was so popular that it caught on and has grown every year since. By partnering with local senior homes, charities and organizations, this event has helped make the holidays of tens of thousands of seniors a whole lot more special and memorable.
It’s an easy way to brighten the holidays for thousands of seniors across the Lower Mainland. The program is very simple: simply head to any London Drugs location and pick up a Stocking Stuffers for Seniors gift tag off the Christmas tree in the store. Each of these tags has a personalized wish list from a local senior or a general wish list from a local care home. You may purchase the items on the tag from either London Drugs or anywhere you wish, and then simply return them, unwrapped, back to the Customer Service counter of the store with the gift tag. You may also include a personal message or card if you wish. Handmade gifts can also be included and are appreciated by the seniors (homemade food gift items are not accepted however). London Drugs will ensure that all these gifts are delivered by Santa and his helpers to all the seniors before Christmas Day!
In this season of giving, this event is one that warms the hearts of those who give, and brightens the hearts of those who receive. It’s a simple and effective way to give to those are vulnerable and less fortunate and bring a little of the season’s magic, sparkle and cheer to their holidays.
