"Facebook Angels" Christmas gift program expands again
An online effort to obtain Christmas presents for some who might not otherwise receive any is once again underway, and this year has expanded the effort once again.
"Facebook Angels" organizer Brent Graden said this yearâ€™s effort has expanded beyond Prestonsburg nursing homes to now also include those residing in Mountain Comprehensive Care Centerâ€™s adult and child crisis centers. As of Tuesday afternoon, Graden was still attempting to fill the remaining slots on a list with 175 names.
The list includes the names of each recipient, as well as some items those people would like to receive. In many cases, the wishes are modest and include items such as socks, blankets, Western novels, lotion and candy. If you would like to participate you can contact Graden though his Facebook page at facebook.com/votebrentgraden.
