Silver Stockings

“Silver Stockings” for the Elderly in Nursing Homes

Thank you for your interest in Vessels of Mercy International’s Silver Stockings Project.

This list below is the approved list for this project. (generic brands are acceptable) Please purchase your items so that all bags will be gender-neutral. We ask that you create bags with 4-6 items but feel free to adjust due to the cost involved. You may also add a card or note to the inside of any bag you donate! Please be sure everything is inside the bags. Silver bags are available for pickup at our office.

Other donation needs: If you have extra items, we’d love to receive those to help make additional bags to supplement last minute needs and to maximize what we can distribute around the Greater Richmond Community. You can also make a monetary donation and/or purchase items at Amazon from our Silver Stockings wishlist https://smile.amazon.com/Silver Stockings
