Mission Update: Christmas Store a Continual Success - Sister Act

Sister Act

     The Miracle on Broadway Christmas store held at Wayside Christian Mission's Hotel Louisville allows needy parents to "shop" for toys, clothing, books, blankets, and toiletries.  Every family receives a delicious ham for a grand Christmas dinner, too! Once again, some 1200 needy families had gifts under the tree and a feast on the table thanks to the efforts of a lot of hard-working volunteers.  Two sisters, Carol Cook and Cathy Zirnheld, are the event's primary organizers.  Working with individual volunteers, corporate sponsors, and Toys for Tots, Carol and Cathy are determined that no child will be forgotten on Christmas morning.  One needy mom, who requested that her name be withheld, explained, "Carol and Cathy are angels from heaven!  Without them, my three girls would have no packages under the Christmas tree!  Please tell everyone how grateful we are!"
