Seniors Donate To Help Hurt Children

A little extra love goes a long way, and thanks to an area retirement community's generosity injured children across Texoma will receive some extra comfort when hurt.
The Horizon Bay Vibrant Retirement Community collected hundreds of teddy bears through the month of March in a "Super Bingo" event.
Wednesday American Medical Response team members picked up the teddy bears to give to sick children in need of extra comfort during rides in an ambulance.
We spoke with the resident program manager at the facility who told us just how important it was for the residents to give back to a caring community.
"In order for us to be able to give back to the community at large, it makes us feel alive, we're living, we're creating, and here at Horizon Bay, that's what our residents are all about," said Barbie Robertson, Resident Program Manager at Horizon Bay.
To pay for the bears, residents paid donations at the bingo game raising nearly $60 for extra stuffed animals.
Horizon Bay has also participated in campaigns since the beginning of 2011 to give back to the community.
They held a can soup collection for Faith Mission in January, and hosted a party for Head Start children in February.
