ST. PAUL, Minn., July 12 (UPI) -- The manager of a Minnesota nursing home said police have agreed to resume shipments of confiscated liquor for the senior home's happy hour.

Sister Theresa Robertson, manager of the Holy Family Residence in St. Paul, said she sent a letter to St. Paul Police Chief Tom Smith that resulted in the City Council resolving to allow police to ship up to $10,000 worth of confiscated alcoholic beverages to the home each year, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Thursday.

"It has been several years since we have received any liquor from the Police [Department]. We respectfully request your help with a donation of confiscated liquor. It has always been such a pleasant treat for some of our residents," Robertson wrote in the June 14 letter.

The City Council voted July 11 to allow the liquor donations.

"We have very simple Happy Hours," Robertson said. "We usually have some beer and some wine, and this will certainly enhance it."

Robertson said the Happy Family Residence is home to about 100 low-income elderly people.
