MARION (KWWL) -

Marion firefighters delivered Christmas presents today to people who might not otherwise get them. 

The "Be a Santa to a Senior" project is something Home Instead Senior Care organizes each year. 

The project identifies seniors who may not get gifts during the holidays. 

Today, Marion firefighters delivered 68 presents at multiple locations. 

The gifts mean a lot to those who receive them.   

"My children have children and so I say hey you guys celebrate, I'm fine here," says Coriene Tevis. 

Tevis says receiving the gift is her Christmas and this year her gift including yarn which is something she asked for. 

She uses the yarn to make lap robes for the veterans hospital in Marshalltown.
