Gift Drive Produces Big Smiles and Big Thanks



Letter from Belle Chase, LA

We just completed the giveaway of all of the wonderderful toys and gifts to many smiling faces, and some that will be smiling REALLY big on Christmas morning. We distributed toys today and tonight from all of the "Christmas Angels" in NJ that sent such wonderful gifts.

Parents had the option today of coming with or without the kids depending on when they wanted to present the gifts to them. Most came by themselves, opting to use their gifts for Christmas morning. One young boy that did come with his Mom and Dad to pick up his gift is pictured below. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.You can read his expression all over his face.

Also everyone is truly looking forward to Christmas meals, if they can hold out that long. EVERY person that came through our toy distribution tonight, and also a parish sponsored distribution that was held at the church on Monday night, received a box of the soup that Brad brought down. They were extremely excited about the addition to the menu and couldn't wait to try it out.

The parents truly were overjoyed at the outpouring of love that so many people gave to the residents of Plaquemines Parish. We have truly been blessed by SO many great friends in Central NJ. Please pass this message on to ALL who made this night of smiles such a shining success.
