Residents at Avera Prince of Peace nursing home received special gifts from visitors. Eide Bailly employees delivered "bags of cheer" filled with goodies residents had wished for, and they were able to fulfill some of those wishes. Items in the gift bags include toiletries, calendars and holiday treats.
Santa's special helpers were able to get to know some of the 70 residents that received the gifts and bring some extra smiles to their faces.
"Sometimes, they don't have a lot of family that are either close or aren't able to come in and visit them, so to have outside visitors or outside companies give them gifts is just fantastic," said Administrator at Avera Prince of Peace Justin Hinker.
Eide Bailly employees raised the money for the gifts they delivered through their Friday jeans/casual day. Additional items were also donated.
