As the leaves begin to fall and the days get chillier, our thoughts turn to the holidays, especially the most magical time of year. Christmas is a special season, a time to celebrate the ultimate gift given to us by giving gifts to others. Christmas at Fulton Presbyterian Manor is especially exciting, thanks to our very own Secret Santa. We sat down with him or her (we’ve got to keep you guessing) to ask a few questions:
Q: What do you do for the residents at Fulton Presbyterian Manor when Christmas comes around?
A: Keri Edwards, marketing director, and Donna Hunter, social services director, make a list of residents and go around to interview them to see what they would like from Santa. After the deadline passes for families to bring in Christmas presents for their loved ones, Keri gives me a list of suggested presents. I have no names, only a number to identify them. I take this list and, with Keri’s help, I go shopping so everyone has a present under the tree from Santa. To do this right, not only do they not know who I am, I don’t know who they are either.
