Signature HealthCARE of Jacksonville Celebrates Christmas With A Gift Exchange

The residents of Signature Healthcare of Jacksonville have been blessed with gifts from Santa, a Florida senator, Navy sailors, Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, and family members, but had no idea what was in store for them on Christmas day!  Our residents were treated to a wonderful gift when they pitched the penny.

Unfortunately, this is a Chinese Gift exchange as well and many residents learned that they could very quickly have their gift stolen!  Our Quality of Life Director Shirley Andrews also reminded the residents that she doesn’t pay if it lands on the line!

We may have to contact the good folks at the Guinness Book of World Records to record the largest indoor Pitch A Penny/Chinese gift exchange ever!
