City of Faith-LR has been very fortunate to be apart of something amazing for the last four years…delivering Christmas cheer, dinner, and gifts to an awesome group of people: Senior Citizens. In 2006, COF-LR decided it was time to do something different, something besides helping former federal offenders reestablish their lives. Since that day, over 1,000 seniors have been blessed by the hands of these very same former federal offenders. For the 2010 Silver Linings for Christmas Project (formerly known as the COF-LR Christmas Project), COF-LR residents were able to participate in 2 different parts of the project. Part 1 consisted of COF-LR residents and staff spending time with the attendees of the Southwest and East Little Rock Senior Centers by playing BINGO and awarding prizes on December 9. Part 2, COF-LR residents were able to create ornaments, Christmas cards, bookmarks, stuff gift bags, and prepare Christmas dinner for 300 senior citizens. The 300 gift bags and Christmas dinners were delivered in partnership with the City of Little Rock ALERT Center Facilitators. “This is my favorite time of the year, the City of Faith Christmas Project. I look forward each year to a new group of City of Faith residents who get to take part in this project. It has completely changed my life as well as each one of these senior citizens and residents at City of Faith,” stated COF-LR Deputy Executive Director Terry Williams.
