Santa’s Elves Come to Jackson-Feild

On December 13th members of two different groups traveled far and wide to Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health Services’ main campus in Jarratt, VA to wrap all the children’s Christmas presents

The volunteers included members from the PEO Chapter C-D-Littleton, N.C. and the Lake Gaston Ladies Club. They both have been actively involved with Jackson-Feild in a variety of ways over the years. This will be the 12th Christmas they served as Santa’s helpers wrapping the presents for the boys and girls.

The day began when the women arrived bright and early in the morning and got right to work. By the end of the day over 250 presents were carefully wrapped with loving by these special ladies. They made sure no presents went unwrapped and each ribbon curled to perfection.

The children are very grateful to these special elves for their wonderful efforts to make Christmas special for children who have never experienced a “real” Christmas.
