Every year we ask our neighbours, friend and family to donate items to pack in our “stockings” that will be donated to St. John’s Kitchen. Guests at the kitchen face poverty, homelessness, social isolation.
This event is to provide each guest with a small stocking with personal care items and treats over the holidays; a small gesture that someone cares.
This year we will also send some “stockings” to the outreach team at Kitchener Downtown Community Health Centre who will share them with people they know.
Saturday December 8th

We also need lots of Christmas stickers to decorate the paper-bag stockings and festive marker colours to write messages.
