Cape Coral family delivers Christmas joy to Southwest Florida seniors

One Cape Coral family is delivering Christmas joy to Southwest Florida’s elderly population by bringing homemade goodies and holiday music to their front door.
The special surprise starts with brothers Logan Grabill, 11, Tanner Grabill, 11, and Jace Grabill, 6, putting on a red nose, then knocking on the door of one of their mother’s Preferred Care at Home clients.

“We send caregivers out so that they don’t have to go to an assisted living facility and they’re able to stay home,” said Ashley Grabill.

Grabill’s kids began making special deliveries to Preferred Care at Home clients just after Halloween when they dressed up to give out candy. Then, her three boys wanted to do something special for Christmas.

“Singing songs to people and giving them treats and a calendar..so we can spread the joy for Christmas,” Logan Grabill said.

Jace Grabill, 6, said he loves singing the holiday songs with his brothers and spreading the Christmas spirit to all kinds of families they visit. His mother said they’ve already shared their Christmas carols, cookies, and compassion with people living in North Fort Myers, Lehigh, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and Fort Myers Beach.

“It makes people feel better and makes them happier,” said Tanner Grabill.

Ashley Grabill said she and her sons plan to continue making these special visits during holidays like Valentine’s Day, and she couldn’t be more proud of the character they’re already showing.

“It shows how much I care and shows how they should care,” Ashley Grabill said.
