BAKER, La., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The holidays are thought of by many as a time of giving and receiving. During the winter season, family and friends exchange gifts and enjoy festive celebrations. But for many kids, the holiday season is a somewhat depressing time. While other children are enjoying their new gifts, these kids are wondering why they did not receive any presents. Less fortunate families are hard-pressed to provide their children with a happy holiday season, but with the help of Ricky Sinclair and the rest of the congregation at Miracle Place Church, the season will be bright for some kids who, otherwise, would not have found any presents under the tree.
ChillicotheGazette.com published an article that spotlights a local gift drive that helps the less fortunate by creating what Operation Christmas Child calls shoebox gifts. In the same spirit of giving, Sinclair and the members of Miracle Place Church have dedicated a great deal of time and resources to providing gifts to children in need in the community.
"Holidays always bring excitement and generosity," comments Ricky Sinclair. "The congregational family of Miracle Place Church collects donations of new toys and clothes or financial gifts for congregational members as well as the children of their All The Way House residents. Names are submitted and tags are made with the child's wish list. Interested members choose a name, or two, and provide Christmas gifts for their chosen children. It is a fantastic avenue that we have used for several years to both connect people and provide kids with a Christmas to remember."
All The Way House is a ministry that assists individuals in overcoming substance abuse problems. As such, the children of the individuals who are enrolled in the All The Way House program are often in need of extra Christmas cheer during the holidays. The congregation at Miracle Place Church works hard to ensure that the families of individuals in the program are supported just as much as those who are battling their addiction problems.
Sinclair encourages everyone who is able to donate or volunteer in an effort to make someone else's holiday bright. Families across the country are facing financial and other difficulties that may negatively impact their Christmas—and Sinclair believes that, by joining forces and working together, generous individuals can improve their spirits by offering their support this holiday season.
