You can make a difference in a local senior’s life this holiday season by participating in Stocking Stuffers for Seniors at London Drugs. They partner with local care homes and charities with a mission to bring more holiday cheer to seniors, in all the communities they serve.

Stocking Stuffers for Seniors at London Drugs

Supporters can visit their local London Drugs between now and December 14, 2023 to choose a tag from the Christmas Tree, which is usually in a prominent place but if you can’t find it just ask. The tags contain the wish list (including gifts and/or everyday essentials) for a local senior. Shop around for those items and bring the tag and your items to a check-out to make your contribution.

When seniors are lonely or isolated, it can significantly compromise their mental or physical health. When they receive a gift at Christmas, it reminds them that someone out there cares about them.

Your donated items don’t even need to be purchased from a London Drugs store — any new, non-gift wrapped item is accepted in-store. Check the signage beside the Christmas Tree to see exactly where your gifts are going. They will also have information on the signage from the care home on how they would like to manage the gifts. You still may see very specific instructions or timelines to quarantine gifts before Christmas. Gifts will be tailored to the needs and wants of each partnered care home.

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 has donated gifts to more than 75,000 seniors so far.
