GREENFIELD — On a recent afternoon at Eden Elementary School, 8-year-old Emma Holt wondered how to best make a homemade Christmas gift for someone she’d never met.
That was the task at hand last week for about two dozen students in the YMCA after-school enrichment program.
The children “adopted” 55 residents at Autumn Park Assisted Living in Indianapolis, vowing to make their holiday a bit brighter with homemade ornaments and Christmas gifts for those who might not otherwise have much to celebrate.
The children made cards, snow globes and other decorations.
“We’re just trying to make them feel happy and have a very merry, merry Christmas,” Emma said.
Wednesday, a few of the residents boarded a bus and drove from Indianapolis to visit Eden Elementary to meet the children and receive their goodies.
