Stockings for Seniors
In today’s society we don’t often appreciate our elders who have had such a positive impact on our lives.
Stockings for Seniors is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting seniors within our community by providing everyday household items, assistance with food and prescriptions, clothing and simple companionship around a tough time of year for some: the holidays.
Stockings for Seniors serves those who are 60+ years of age, who have little to no support in their home and community. Stockings for Seniors was founded in 2011, and has helped over 375 senior citizens to date.
The organization was started to help seniors around the holidays by providing Christmas stockings stuffed with gift items, however the response from the community was so great that the items would not fit into stockings - so gift bags were delivered instead. We thought this was a great problem to have!
Referrals are made through social workers and other professionals in the community. We reach out to local businesses and the general public for donations. We have support from various Hannaford locations, as well as state fundraisers. 100% of all proceeds and donations go directly to the seniors in our community.
Seniors are a forgotten population, especially during the holiday season. Charities and nonprofit organizations are prevalent for children and families, but those that focus on seniors are hard to come by. Stockings for Seniors vision is simple– we just want to give back to the seniors who have worked hard their whole lives to make our community what it is today.
We encourage you to get involved in our efforts to brighten a senior's holiday! From October to December, local residents are asked to choose a Christmas stocking tag from a tree placed at the entrance in several local Hannaford’s, purchase the gift listed on the tag and return the gift to the customer service desk.
We are always looking for local businesses/individuals to help us with this much needed nonprofit organization.
