Dr. Pepper Donates Free Products to Nursing Home After Hearing Their Plea for Pen Pals

Nursing home residents in Texas asked for pen pals during the coronavirus pandemic.

Since they aren’t allowed to have visitors, many seniors are asking to communicate with people the old-fashioned way.

The residents at Hillside Medical Lodge in Gatesville, TX went viral and caught the eyes of some major corporations. Miss Billie simply posted that her interests are family and Dr. Pepper.

Not long after the picture was added to Facebook, the Texas-born soft drink company delivered 16 cases of unsolicited product for Miss Billie and her friends.
