The Rev. Ronald Hardy Sr., of West Feliciana’s Faith, Hope and Love Worship Center, and the church’s missionary team, It’s All About Love, gave back to children and families in need during the holiday season.

The group prepared and distributed bags of food to families in the St. Francisville community in November.

Rolanda Robinson, the pastor’s secretary, said this was the first community outreach effort by the team, which formed this year.

“We also gave toys to underprivileged children for Christmas,” Robinson said.

Families had to pre-register for the toy giveaway, the second effort by the missionary team. The event was held Dec. 21.
