Peoria woman wrapping presents for heart disease
PEORIA (25 News Now) - A Peoria woman remembered her grandfather while doing her favorite holiday activity, wrapping presents.
After losing her grandfather to heart disease in early October, Alexandra Chaney wanted to find a way to keep his spirit alive this Christmas, so she decided to host a fundraiser.
Normally Chaney wrapped gifts for friends and family, but this year she opened her skills up to the community. All she asked in return is a donation of any amount to the American Heart Association. Chaney said her grandfather, Albert Chaney, was a beloved referee in Peoria for 40 years and the community has really come together to support her.
“I didn’t expect this big of an outcome for it, but I couldn’t be happier because it’s just more that we can give in my grandpa’s name,” Chaney said.
For the month of December, the American Heart Association is doubling every donation they receive.
