Seniors in the Quad Cities got into the holiday spirit on Friday with a ” Senior Secret Santa” event.
Those gifts were delivered on Friday while employees sang Christmas carols.
Event coordinator Allison Couch says seniors asked for a lot of different things.
“There were quite a variety of items … some of them basic essential items such as laundry detergent, or bath towels … but then there were some really fun, unique items,” said Couch. “We had a lot of Chicago Cubs fans asking for ball caps, a lot of Hawkeye memorabilia and sweaters, if you will, so it was quite the variety.”
Thousands of gifts were collected for the seniors this year.
