Fill a stocking for those in need

For the fourth year in a row, Joan King is calling on NOTLers to fill a stocking to spread some holiday cheer. 

For Dec. 20, King will have 222 stockings filled up and ready to distribute across long-term care homes, including Upper Canada Lodge, Pleasant Manner and Niagara Long Term Care. 

“Thirty have already been done by the Niagara Lions and the Crossroads School kindergarten class,” King told The Lake Report. “I’m putting the rest to our community.”

Those who choose to fill a stocking can drop them off at King’s home, or a new partnering location, Apple Hill Apothecary in Queenston. 

“If someone goes in there to drop off a stocking they will give you a sample of something like tea or a bath salt,” she said. 

The company just opened in May, King added, so the partnership is a great opportunity to showcase the business to the community.

Those who wish to fill a stocking can contact Joan King at  joankemp10@yahoo.com. 

They will be distributed from the NOTL Community Centre on Dec. 20.
