Church offers Christmas store to Crestview Manor residents (PHOTOS)

Published: Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 02:02 PM.

The women's ministry of the church headed the event with assistance from youth in the Acteens group, who wrapped each gift in Christmas wrapping paper and delivered the gifts to the residents' rooms.

After volunteering with the store on behalf of the church in the past, current resident Neta Roberts is now on the receiving end.

'It feels fine, not as good as being the giver, but I love it," she said. "I hope they always have this going on, because some are not as fortunate as others."

The facility's activities director, Susan Josey, agreed.

"It's a wonderful, wonderful thing that they are doing," she said. "Without this, residents would not be able to give presents to their friends and family."
