CRESTVIEW — Jackson Hewitt Tax Service and Emerald Coast Hospice partnered to provide Easter gifts for 200 people during their fifth annual 'Basket of Blessings' event.
They presented baskets to residents at Twin Cities Assisted Living; Stanley House in DeFuniak Springs; and Silvercrest Health and Rehabilitation Center and Crestview Manor, both in Crestview, the week of April 7. The baskets and gift bags contained Kleenex, lotions, shaving cream, razors, brushes, shampoo, combs, snacks, games and puzzles.
But that's not all.
"This year, our Jackson Hewitt owners, Carl and Carrie Kelley of Muskogee, Oklahoma, wanted to do something special for the residents, and each and every resident (also) received a Jackson Hewitt bag with pajama bottoms and baggy T-shirts, as well as a Jackson Hewitt shirt, to have something comfortable to relax in," a media release stated.
