Perrysburg Commons delivers Heart-a-Grams to area seniors
PERRYSBURG - Perrysburg Commons offered a way for the community to say "Happy Valentine's Day" to a special senior citizen in their life. The Commons took orders for a delivery of a complimentary Valentine's box filled with a half dozen heart-shaped cookies, along with a message from the caller, to anyone over the age of 65 residing in Perrysburg.
During the week of Feb. 10 Perrysburg Commons hit the streets to make the deliveries to more than 40 households.
"It was so nice to make Valentine's Day special for many folks. We received many hugs and smiles," said Susan Snoddy, admissions director.
