Stocking Stuffers For Seniors


--by greenurlifenow, posted Dec 10, 2021
One of our local Drug Stores/Pharmacy has a holiday program called Stocking Stuffers for Seniors, which they coordinate with local seniors facilities.

The seniors request a few items that they would like, and the gift tags with their requests are placed on a Christmas tree in the store. 🎄

Customers can take a tag from the tree, buy the items that are requested and return the tag and gifts to the customer service desk.

I took one tag for a man and one for a woman, and I will be getting the items on their wish list. I will include a Christmas card with the gifts to spread some holiday cheer to them, as many are alone, without any family.
