Hazard Health and Rehabilitation Center delivers singing telegrams

By  | 

PERRY COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Hazard Health and Rehabilitation Center employees delivered Valentine's Day telegrams through personalized songs Wednesday.

These well-tuned Valentine's Day gifts shocked many in the community but never failed to make one smile.

Rachel Hoffman, who works with the organization, says these telegrams gave her a unique way to show her daughters how much she loves them.

"Of course I took the chance to do something special for my girls," Hoffman said.

Her daughter, Kavin Woods, could not find the words to express how thankful she was.

"I'm overjoyed ... surprised ... shocked," Woods said.

Administrator Charlotte Thornsberry says these telegrams show the community just how much they care and in return, they can spread a little love too.

"Not only is it embarrassing, but at the same time, you feel a little bit special that someone is giving you something that is so special," Thornsberry said.

Organizers say every telegram purchased can be personalized from the chocolate to the balloons, and of course the song.

All proceeds go to an activity fund used for gifts, dinners, and nights out on the town for nursing home residents.
