Saline Memorial gives blankets to patients

BENTON, Ark. (KTHV) - The Christmas cheer was flowing into Saline Memorial Hospital Friday.

The Saline Memorial Health Foundation passed out blankets to those spending Christmas in the hospital. This was the second year for the program, and patients said it meant a lot to see people taking the time to think of them.

"I know everybody out there is busy with their own Christmas plans, their families you know. My family is busy. So, it makes me feel really good that someone has taken time out of their day, out of their schedule, being away a few minutes from their families to come here and make sure that me and the other patients and my family, you know that we're having a good day," said Ann Basco.

The foundation bought the blankets with the funds raised through Giving Tuesday.
