Started as a way to do something for lonely seniors during the Christmas season, the 2nd annual Stockings for Seniors Drive is wrapping up soon. Five Riverbend locations are accepting donations through December 4th of various items, including gloves, hats, scarves, decks of large print playing cards, large print puzzle books, pens, and blanket throws.
Event spokesman Stacey Loveland tells The Big Z being able to bring stockings to seniors is a touching experience.
