Giving Back to the Community

Help Us Fill Stockings for Cancer Patients

Banner on donating a Christmas stocking to help cancer patients

Each year, the Butler and Mercer County communities come together by donating Christmas stockings filled with items for cancer patients. Our office and several other local businesses and organizations have offered to be collection sites. After collection, Mrs. Claus and her team of elves gather all of the stockings to a single location and work together to distribute each and every one over the course of two weeks.One Hour Butler employees participating in the Hang Tough stocking drive

Stockings are delivered to patients receiving chemo/radiation treatments to over ten local cancer centers and hospice units in our community. These treatments sometimes take hours and goodies in their stocking will hopefully help pass the time and put a smile on their face!

​From October 18 through November 18, filled stockings can be dropped off at Schneider’s One Hour (172 Unionville Road, Butler), Butler Radio Network (252 Pillow Street, Butler), or one of the other stocking collection locations. Click here for a complete list. Special procedures are in place to ensure all donations receive 14-days quarantine prior to distribution to patients, in accordance with CDC recommendations for COVID-19.

The goal of our project is to fill stockings with special items that can be gifted to either a mail or a female cancer patient. Here is a list of some suggested items that can fit into a stocking, but please remember to be unique and creative!
