Special Christmas Party

By  | 

The Christian Mission Center in Enterprise held a special Happy Birthday Jesus Party on Tuesday.

Toys and other gifts were given to the children of those parents who are in emergency shelter or who are going through the center's faith-based drug rehab program.

In many instances, these parents don't have the ability to buy presents for their kids and volunteers say it's a rewarding project to participate in.

"This year to help ease the strain, stress and burden on the families that we have, it helps for them to know that someone does care for them," says Maria Arledge, with the Christian Mission Center.

The Christian Mission Center provides on-site and Meals on Wheels programs for people in several Wiregrass counties and communities.
