SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Holidays can be lonely, so nearly 40 students from St. Michael's school in South Sioux City came to the Northern Hills Assisted Living Center to bring some cheer to the residents.
The students are part of the Lucky Leprechauns and Seniors Helping Students program. The program helps area school children with basic school supplies and clothes.
Last month, about 100 students received winter coats at St. Michael's through the program.
Seniors at Northern Hills helped raise money to pay for some of the jackets. To say thank you, students came out to sing songs, read and visit with residents at Northern Hills.
"Anytime you can provide an environment with young children, it is very uplifting, and I walked around and just watched kids interact with our seniors they have been reading stories to each other, a lot of hugs, just being comfortable," Gary Troth said.
One resident says the visit was very heart warming and something they were looking forward to.
