In December 2018, we first partnered with LIFE Senior Services and donated and delivered 40 Senior Stockings. Senior Stockings are tote bags filled with a variety of things from a list of suggested items that our seniors find useful. These totes were filled with things like a throw blanket, a magnifying glass, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, razors, shaving cream, lotion, body wash, bars of soap, shampoo, conditioner, socks, pens, note pads, large print word search books, various candies and snacks, etc.
When the pandemic hit, things changed, but we decided to continue with this tradition through Real Okie Superheroes.
In December 2022, we visited 6 eldercare facilities in Glenpool, Oklahoma City, Catoosa, Claremore, and Stilwell, OK. We delivered 588 of these tote bags, and the extra ones were given to individuals experiencing homelessness in the Tulsa area.
These tote bags are made possible with donations (funds raised and items donated). Each tote bag is valued at around $20.
