    David and Peggy gave Jean, a woman in her 80s, a pair of slippers, a sweater and a Mickey Mouse doll.  Jean told Channel 11 her interests include Mickey Mouse, the Steelers and dogs.

    Jessie, who is also in her 80s, loves country music. David and Peggy bought her some country Christmas CDs and a cowboy hat. 

    Presents for Patients is looking for people, businesses and groups to adopt patients in nursing homes, assisted living and personal care homes.
