Blessings in a Stocking

Local families, churches, schools and businesses reach out to Traditions at Beaumont residents In the days leading up to Hanukkah and Christmas

Traditions at Beaumont, Louisville, KY - Stocking PhotoThis time last year, we celebrated the holidays with gatherings of family and friends, festive traditions and, if we were lucky, an abundance of good health and happiness. No one could have predicted just how lucky we were to hug our loved ones at the holidays.

This year was mostly one of disruption, to our daily routines, our relationships and the way we stayed connected. But it was also a year of resilience, one that’s given us a new appreciation for simple blessings we may have taken for granted.

Traditions at Beaumont, located in Louisville, KY, has made certain its residents will be reminded of life’s blessings this holiday season.

Traditions at Beaumont, Louisville, KY - Stocking PhotoEarlier this month, Johnna Hale, Activities Director at Traditions of Beaumont reached out to its Facebook followers, families of past and current residents, healthcare partners, local businesses and organizations to come through for the seniors in their community.

“Our program is called Blessings in a Stocking because we ask our generous donors to bring us little gifts we can sneak into our residents’ stockings when they’re asleep,” says Johnna. “It’s the little things that really bring a smile to their faces, especially this year.”

Popular items include, handwritten cards and letters, hand-drawn pictures from children, candy, playing cards, comfy socks or slippers, gloves, hats, puzzles, word searches and puzzles, lotions, small room decorations, handkerchiefs, notecards and more. Gifts continue to stream in throughout the month of December and are placed in stockings right up until Christmas Day. Perhaps up to New Year’s Day this year.
