Christy and Caine have teamed up for the mission for the past several years and this was the first year 8-year-old Andon joined in the fun.
"Andon took Christmas on with a whole new meaning," Christy said of her youngest grandson, who's a third grade student at Southside Elementary School. "And Caine is 12 now and he still loves it. He calls me the captain; he's the supervisor and Andon is the rookie.
"We'll keep doing this as long as we can, as long as we have the stuff."
Christy collects items all year long -- things like stuffed animals (cuddlies), toiletries, and other small gifts -- spends a day bagging the items and then spends a day delivering to nursing homes Glen Oaks and Christian Care Center.
