London Drugs is thrilled to continue a great seasonal tradition: Stocking Stuffers for Seniors, from Monday, November 18 – Monday, December 16.
Stocking Stuffers for Seniors partners with local care homes, charities, and organizations to bring more holiday cheer to seniors in their communities. In 2019, we’re excited to offer this annual Christmas community campaign chain wide at every London Drugs location, for the third year in a row!
Your donated items don’t need to be purchased from a London Drugs store — any new, non-gift wrapped item is accepted. Check the sign beside the Christmas Tree in your local London Drugs store, to see exactly where your gifts are going.
Our goal this Christmas: From Monday, November 18 – Monday, December 16,* help Stocking Stuffers for Seniors bring extra holiday cheer to 17,000 seniors across our communities!
MomMomOnTheGo and crew headed down to our local London Drugs and picked three seniors off the tree to fill stockings for. You do not actually fill a stocking, what you do is pick a tag which indicates the items the senior is wishing for, buy the items, then hand them back to customer service with the tag. Simple as that!
We found that most wishes were for coffee, coffee mugs, chocolates, cookies, puzzles, books, no-slip socks, and similar items…
How Did Stocking Stuffers for Seniors Start?
The Stocking Stuffers for Seniors campaign began in 2015, with one store location providing help for 500 inner city seniors. The campaign quickly caught on, growing in 2016 to multiple store locations helping more than 2,000 seniors in their communities. In 2017, Stocking Stuffers for Seniors went chain wide across all stores, in all locations — and with incredible support from all our communities, London Drugs delivered donated gifts to more than 10,000 seniors! In 2019, London Drugs is excited to once again offer the Stocking Stuffers for Seniors campaign chain wide, for the third year in a row.
