Sandy Schappert is the spirit behind the Christmas Stockings filled with toiletries. Acting upon a remark made by her late husband Hank Schappert, while volunteering at the Food Bank, she has sought to fill the need for toiletries for adults for more than a decade, and each year the community responds.

Because clients of the Hunger Stop can only access the Food Bank once a month, stockings start being handed out in the middle of November, so you can see why when we say Christmas is “just around the corner” we mean it.

Suggestions for stocking stuffers are:

Toothpaste, Toothbrush, Shampoo, Conditioner, Body wash, Multi-blade razors, Nail file, Nail clippers, Shaving cream, After-shave lotion, Moisturizing lotion, Loofa, Hairbrush, Comb, Dental floss, Deodorant, Liquid hand soap, Bar soap, Wet wipes, and, perhaps a small sweet.

Please mark stockings “HIS” or “HERS”

Below are the numbers to beat this year …
