Nine years ago, Cornerstone at Milford Assisted Living came up with a way to give back to the community during the holidays. Stockings for Seniors, is a program that joins together area businesses and organizations to create holiday gifts for Milford area seniors. “Each year, we are inspired by the generosity of so many in our community, who come together to help make this tradition possible,” said Jared Pearson Director of Community Relations for Cornerstone at Milford Assisted Living.
With the help of local businesses, organizations and eldercare professionals, Cornerstone was able to donate more than 250 stockings. Each stocking was filled with items like socks, mittens, beauty care products, stamps and gift cards to the Milford Senior Center, who helped distribute the stockings to seniors.
Cornerstone would like to say a special thank you to the following individuals, local businesses and organizations who donated time, funds and materials: Milford Senior Center, Tri-County Regional Chamber, Bellingham Senior Center, The Enclave of Franklin, Countryside Health Care of Milford, Franklin Senior Center, The Aging Space, Edward M. Kennedy Community Health Center, Legacy Office Solutions, Inc, Local Business First, Suburban Lifestyle Real Estate, Vivilicious Treats, The Wine House, Staples, New Hope, Inc, Central One Federal Credit Union, Tri-Valley, Inc.

“Stockings for Seniors brings together families and friends, partners and vendors, co-workers and neighbors, to bring joy to those in need,” Pearson added.
