Elvis and Sophie play Santa

A special thanks to all who donated to the “Adopt a Grandparent for Christmas” this year, it was a huge success and the residents of our local care facilities appreciated the gifts very much. The event was sponsored by a local Mary Kay Director, and Carrie conducted a fundraiser for three of the care facilities. Sophie and Elvis contributed by teaming up for the first time on their therapy visits to deliver the gifts.

Friday morning we met other Mary Kay ladies to deliver gifts to residents of an assisted living center. Sophie and Elvis were in the Christmas spirit and played Santa as they carried gifts in their backpacks. It was a nice surprise to the residents and they thoroughly enjoyed both the gifts and visiting with Sophie and Elvis. As a reward for their service, Sophie and Elvis split a large order of finger steaks.

Saturday afternoon was their first visit to the Veterans care facility and the guys did an incredible job of bringing joy to those who served our country. The residents received their “Adopt a Grandparent for Christmas” gift which they enjoyed immensely, and as a bonus got to meet Sophie and Elvis. Speaking of bonuses, Sophie and Elvis were each rewarded with a taquito for their hard work.
