Dothan, AL (WSFA) - A group of students at Wallace Community College in Dothan is helping make the holiday season special for their elderly neighbors.

The practical nursing students of Wallace Community College have adopted 18 "grandparents" from area health-care facilities.

All Wallace students have been invited to contribute gifts for the grandparents.

Once the gift collection is complete, the practical nursing students will deliver those items to various nursing facilities for disbursement to their resident adoptees.

The PN students have already helped residents of Westside Terrace "shop" at a free holiday bazaar and helped them wrap gifts.  They will also deliver personal care items to Crowne Healthcare for the holidays.
