Shoe Boxes for Eastern Kentucky

Background

Since 2004 the Living Faith community has packed Christmas shoe boxes more mission partners to deliver to youth in need. Each November members have party and pack plastic boxes with supplies for children and teenagers. Since 2014 we have committed to sending our boxes to some of the poorest regions of Eastern Kentucky, where CBF Field Personnel Scarlette Jasper and Olive Branch Ministries distributes them. We load up our boxes and travel to Somerset where Living Faith host a Christmas pizza party with Santa Claus for children and their families.
