Loyola College Prep ‘FAITH’ Program Aids Area Needy At Christmas [VIDEO]
For nearly thirty years, the FAITH program (Flyers Aiding the Hungry) at Loyola College Prep has collected and distributed food baskets and toys for the less fortunate around the ArkLaTex. LCP Seniors - and FAITH co-chairs - Frances Byrd and Anna Lester talk with 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright about the program's success and how, as Frances describes it, "the program has grown to take care of more than 1200 adults and children this Christmas."
Byrd tells KEEL listeners that the entire LCP student body is involved with the annual program, which began twenty eight years ago. She also details the work that began for this year's annual giveaway just after the school opened for the fall semester. Lester adds that the tradition of giving that was taught to today's Loyola upper classmen is being passed along to the younger students the same way it was shown to them.
