Volunteers Deliver Gifts to Seniors

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Gifts are delivered this week to more than 200 homebound seniors and adults with disabilities.

Big Sky Senior Services asked their clients for their Christmas wish lists, and then employees from local businesses adopted one of the clients and bought items on the list.

Jan Smith, with Big Sky Senior Services, says many of the requests were for basic items like socks and cleaning supplies. She says, "They're just so excited, and sometimes it's literally the only gift under their tree. I know one time a lady said I get gift cards from my family, but this will be the only gift I open on Christmas."

Jan says gift cards were also donated so that the seniors are able to shop throughout the year.
