Gracie Davis starts crying every time she sees her Christmas presents sitting by the fireplace.
The 69-year-old Far East Side resident received the gifts through the Adopt-a-Family program by LifeCare Alliance and the Columbus Cancer Clinic.
“There’s people out there that do want to help you,” Davis said. “I’ve never had anybody do anything like that for me.”
The Adopt-a-Family program started in 2006.
The program adopted 54 families this year, which equates to 254 household members, said Christin Brown, director of the Columbus Cancer Clinic.
