Christmas Socks for our Seniors

January 06, 2022

DOH-Putnam, Healthy Families Florida played Santa for seniors this year. Adopting a local nursing home, it was learned that 45 residents would not have visitors or gifts to open this year. DOH-Putnam employees collected 45 bags with blankets, socks and word puzzle books to deliver to the residents who may not have any holiday cheer this season or throughout the year. The simplicity of socks, blankets and a few puzzle books are things that we tend to overlook as a heartfelt gift. This year it brightened 45 individuals who otherwise would have had none.
