Volunteers bring Christmas to America's Best Hotel in Jeffersonville

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Some volunteers helped make Christmas joyful for dozens of children.

Exit 0 Ministries and Park Memorial United Methodist Church teamed up to bring some cheer to kids at America's Best Hotel in Jeffersonville. Volunteers passed out meals to the 54 children who live at the hotel.

They were also given hats, scarves, blankets, hygiene products and clothing.

"It's very humbling," Paul Stensrud, director of Exit 0 Ministries. "And within the outreach of Exit 0, we know many of these particular clients in this hotel. So this is just a great way to give back. Last year we realized some of them didn't have Christmas gifts, so we were able to bring some in and that's how the outreach started. It's very humbling to be able to serve our community with outreach for those people in need and bless them with Christmas."

The children were also treated to a visit from Santa Claus.
