Church packs up holiday cheer for hospice residents
By WVUA 23 News Student Reporter Emily Benito
Gift bags full of goodies are filled and ready to be given to Hospice of West Alabama for Outpatients and Inpatients to express love and acknowledgment for those in the community during the holiday season.
The BlackBelt Gospel Blast is an annual event and the bags filled with supplies were handed out Dec. 3. The bags were filled with quilts, slippers and socks, electric shavers, washable adult bibs, manicure sets and personal care items.
The BlackBelt Gospel Blast team hopes this event will show patients that they are loved and appreciated during the holidays.
