High school student organizes event for residents at local senior facility

WINONA, Minn. (WKBT) – One Winona High School student brought some joy to residents at a local senior facility.

As part of a service-learning class, junior Gracie Sholes organized a day of bingo outdoors.

Seniors at Burns Valley Apartments in Winona played from their patios and decks.

She says this is something the residents have been looking forward to.

“When we were handing out the flyers for this there was a lot of excitement from the residents. They were requesting me to bring treats and stuff like that, so they were super excited,” Sholes said.

The winners received gift cards from local businesses.

Plus, Sholes and her family put together swag bags for everyone.
