For 12 holiday seasons, Kimberly Teats-Garrison, daughter of Quad Cities Station's own Art Teats, has gathered gifts and other needed items for nursing home residents in Morrison, Prophetstown, Fulton and Savanna with the hopes of ensuring the senior citizens she serves know they are not forgotten during the holidays.
This year, with an $1,000 donation from Quad Cities Station, Kim was able to significantly expand her service, which is known as Together We Share, Together We Care.
"Having added two additional homes to the program this year, Exelon's contribution was the deciding factor on being able to supply six nursing homes with a generous quantity of items," she said. "As the founder/director of the program, I was concerned donations may fall short this year with adding two new facilities. Exelon's donation took away all of that worry and helped us make it a joyous and plentiful season to all on our list."
