London Drugs launches their Annual Stocking Stuffers for Seniors Program!

Stocking Stuffers for Seniors started November 12 and runs through December 8, 2021 at the London Drugs Harris Green Village on Yates Street in Victoria.  You can make Christmas special for a local long-term care resident who no longer has family to celebrate with.

London Drugs locations on Yates Street in Victoria, or on Sooke Road at Colwood Corners, are once again offering the Stocking Stuffers for Seniors program.  From November 12th to December 8th, Christmas trees displayed in-store will be covered with holiday wish lists created for local seniors living in long-term care who no longer have family to buy them presents.  Shoppers can pick the senior they’d like to help, and drop off their gifts in-store.

The wish lists are often a mix of practical items like blankets and toiletries, magazines for entertainment, and holiday treats and candies.  But for seniors living with advanced dementia, the gifts play a doubly special role.  Christmas is one of the few life events that many local seniors have repeated each year throughout their long lives.  This repeated act helps create strong memories that are resistant to their disease.  For them, opening presents on Christmas morning provides the rare chance to reconnect with happy memories from times gone by, reminding them of all that they’ve achieved in their lives.

Join in on this amazing event and pop on down to one of these London Drugs locations today to help make this holiday season a little brighter for these local seniors!
