Facebook proves itself as useful tool for helping those in need

Imagine having little or no family left and not much in the way of people or anyone checking on you. Doesn’t really inspire Christmas spirit does it? There are good people left in the world, and some of these people are doing something about those who are far less fortunate than we are, and I’m not surprised to learn that these people are right here, in Eastern Kentucky.

Facebook Angels is a program that currently lists 77 nursing home residents, and you can pick which person you want to buy for. Employees at Riverview Healthcare in Prestonsburg say that the best part of programs likes this is the fact that everyone gets some kind of gift. The Christmas wishlists are as unique as the people who wrote them at Riverview Healthcare.
