Firefighters gifting blankets to seniors in Berlin Nursing Home
BERLIN, Md. – Firefighters in Ocean City are doing everything they can to make sure the elderly are taken care of this holiday season and feel the Christmas spirit.
Firefighters from the resort town are adopting residents from the Berlin nursing home, and hoping to gift each one with a blanket.
This is the second year the first responders are doing this, and they tell us that the residents love getting the blankets as gifts.
It’s something that residents at the nursing home tell 47 ABC they look forward to all year.
“The blankets are wonderful, we absolutely love them, they’re soft, and they’re lightweight, and warm,” Dolores Kenny, President of residents at the home, said.
To be able to give each resident a blanket, the department set up a Go Fund Me page to raise money.
