Love Transformation Project holds Christmas Outreach event in California Neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- As Christmas approaches, most children have an idea of what would make the holiday special. 

To make the week leading up to Christmas even more special, the Love Transformation Project held a Christmas Outreach event on Sunday at the California Park Community Center. 

Parents were able to take home presents to wrap for their children, and children could also pick out presents for their parents. 

In addition to the festivities, the event also had another purpose. 

"We want to get the kids off the street," Calvin Wooten, founder of the Love Transformation Project, said. "If anybody knows anything about the California neighborhood, there's been a lot of shootings over the last year, so what we're trying to do is get the kids off the street, in the gym, in the center, and to minister them. Teach them some life skills."

The organization also promoted its free upcoming basketball and martial arts seminars for kids.
