JCB students take senior citizens holiday shopping

To kick off the month of December, 37 students from John C. Birdlebough’s Student Council Leadership Team met up with senior citizen from three area nursing homes to take them shopping for the holidays.

Participating nursing homes included Michaud Residential Health Services, Syracuse Home and Loretto.

Two to three students were partnered up with fourteen wheelchair-bound seniors and brought them around Great Northern Mall.

Each senior citizen had a certain amount of money to spend on gifts for family or for themselves.

After an hour of shopping, the JCB students brought the seniors back to the food court, where they ate lunch with them and spent some more time together before returning back to school.
