Yorktown Heights woman leads adopt-a-grandparent program for Rockland nursing home
A Yorktown Heights woman is playing Santa this year by spearheading an adopt-a-grandparent program.
After seeing how isolating this year has been inside nursing homes, Peggy Caruso decided to bring holiday cheer in the form of gift baskets to the Willows at Ramapo.
The facility is near and dear to Caruso because it's where her own mom spent her final years.
For a $20 donation, Caruso is inviting people to adopt a grandparent who will then receive a gift bag with lotion, soft socks and something sweet.
