Our Holiday Stocking Stuffers!

Arlington’s Council on Aging (COA) will be selecting local seniors in need of a holiday pick-me-up. This is a wonderful community expression for those who may need it and will be alone for the holidays.  We will supply the undecorated stocking…and you can decorate and fill the stocking with non-edible fun items and practical household items which will then be delivered during the holiday season by COA volunteers between Friday, December 16, and New Year’s Eve day (December 31).

If you would like to participate in this holiday program, you may pick up an undecorated stocking at the COA office no later than Friday, December 9, 2016, by noon, located on the ground floor of the Senior Center at 27 Maple Street.  Once you have filled your stocking, we ask that you return it (decorated and filled) to the Council on Aging office by Monday, December 12, by 4 PM.

Arlington school students will be making holiday cards which will be included in your stocking for delivery.  Stocking contents are reviewed and vetted before delivery.  This is a wonderful community expression for those who may need it. 

To celebrate your decorated holiday stockings, we will announce a gathering for participants for mid December, with refreshments and awards for several fun categories—as judged by our "Stocking Stuffer Design Committee."
