Official measurements were taken by a certified agent and are being sent to Guinness book. When I was approached by Charlie Thomas, radio host from our local radio station KDRO about this project, I immediately became very excited about being involved. Thomas knew the reputation of our congregation as being very involved in outreach and leadership in our community. He reached out to the Outreach Team of First Christian Church to be the de and sewing team for the project.
The stocking was made in conjunction with the Community Santa project that has been in existence approximately 35 years in Pettis County. The Community Santa provides toys, books and games, donated by individuals from Sedalia and surrounding area, for more than children, elderly and the disabled every year.
Persons receiving assistance fall below the poverty level guidelines deed by the Department of Family Services. Community Santa, KDRO and the Sedalia Democrat our local newspaper used the production of the stocking to help stimulate more participation from the community in giving toys so that every child in our community has the promise of a magical day. This project has provided opportunity for our church to work with businesses, individuals and media in our community and develop new relationships between our own members.
New relationships have developed between intergenerational persons ranging from 94 years old to 8 years old. Global Mission Co-Workers.
