A Burnaby florist wants your help stuffing stockings for those who could use cheering up at Christmas.
Plush Floral Studio, 3978B Hastings St., is once again putting together hundreds of stockings that the business and its customers fill with important items that will help those who are less fortunate that we might be.
“We will be hand delivering the stockings to someone spending the holidays on the streets on Christmas Day,” says a statement from Plush. “Let’s beat last year’s record of 400 stockings.”
All you have to do is come into Plush and they will give you a Christmas stocking to fill.
Suggested items include warm gloves, hats and socks, toothpaste/brush, lip balm, other personal hygiene essentials, snacks and candy.
“Feel free to personalize your stocking with any items you may like and you may wish to add a note for the recipient - sometimes there is strength in connection, and words may touch someone.”
Make sure to drop off the stocking by Dec. 24 so it can be delivered on Christmas day.
