PEORIA (HOI) – Today at Goodwill in Peoria, local veterans enjoyed a show of appreciation.
It was the store’s veteran’s Christmas party.
Veteran’s received a big lunch and holiday gifts.
But they also got to shop for their own friends and family.
All presidents were free of charge and gift-wrapped.
“You know, some of these people are in a different part of their lives that they might be struggling a little more than others so these gifts can help you a lot,” said former Marine Adam Sells.
Sells said that he is grateful to get a new shirt today that he was for the camera, as well as a grocery store gift card.
