The Department of Aging in Butler County has found a unique way to brighten the lives of the elderly in their community.

The agency created the holiday bag project that has been running for more than 12 years. The executive director Crystal Noles said the bags are packed with care and love and of course, gifts. 

"They're overwhelmed, overwhelmed that they were thought of and like I said this may be the only gift they receive over the holiday season, and they look forward to seeing us and going through the bags each and every year," said Noles.

Noles said more than 50 bags get filled and delivered to isolated seniors throughout the Butler County community.
