London Drugs partners with the Regina “Santa for Seniors” program
This Christmas season, Regina residents have an opportunity to play Santa for Seniors at London Drugs. Working with a Regina community organization, holiday shoppers can visit any London Drugs in Regina from November 28th until December 12th to purchase gifts for local seniors.
At this time of year many seniors are overlooked for gifts. The team at Santa for Seniors ensures that home care residents are all given a gift at Christmas by collecting items on a senior’s wish list and creating ornaments. These ornaments are then placed on a Christmas Tree at both London Drugs locations in Regina. Wish list requests include a variety of products for seniors.
8 POPULAR GIFTS FOR SENIORS
- Blankets or throws
- Slippers and socks
- Pajamas, nightgowns and robes
- Sugar-free candy and chocolates
- Clothing such as sweat pants, sweaters and underwear
- Gift certificates for groceries and toiletries
- Board games and puzzle/crossword books
Holiday shoppers simply take the ornament to customer service to purchase the item for a local senior, preferably in a gift bag. After December 12th the gifts will be collected by volunteers and prepared for Christmas Day distribution to homes in the community.
At each London Drugs there will be up to 50 gift tags available. Individuals can also purchase stocking stuffer type items as well for seniors to enhance their Christmas Day experience.
