Sisters Julia and Jennifer Hudson created the foundation in loving memory of Julian D. King.
Local families are encouraged to arrive early and pick up a present to celebrate the season. Children must be present to receive a gift. Masks will be required inside the church at all times, regardless of age or vaccination status.
In addition to this year’s toy giveaway, the Foundation also donated gifts to students at local schools including Henry Booth House Daycare, Murray Language Academy and Emmett Louis Till Math and Science Academy. The gifts were given out before the holiday break, to ensure students received a present this season.
