It was Christmas shopping day for residents of Benchmark Healthcare in Monett on Thursday, Dec. 6, with personnel from Hospice Compassus' Dream Team providing a vast selection of donated items from which to choose.
The portable Christmas Store Program allows nursing home residents to choose special gifts to present to their loved ones this holiday season.
Ginger Harrison, volunteer coordinator for Hospice Compassus in Branson, said the Dream Team collects donations from a variety of stores, organizations and re-gifted items from individuals to stock the mobile store.
