One Raleigh County woman is teaming up with area children to help spread joy to the elderly this holiday season.

Crystal Brogan is working with the Girl Scouts of America and several other organizations to make gift baskets to be donated to elderly at the Raleigh Center in Daniels. Brogan said the goal is to make 68 baskets for the folks in the nursing home. Right now she is looking for folks to step up and donate goods to be put in the baskets.

"They have 68 individuals there so we want to make sure they have something for Christmas because a lot of them are put in and forgotten and we think about our kids for Christmas but we really don't think about our elders," Brogan said.

If you would like to donate, contact Crystal Brogan at brogran4352@yahoo.com.
