Favorite Service Project: Favorite Service Project: I have 2 favorite service projects that I have participated in. The first is Samaritan Purse’s Operation Christmas Child which I take part in every year at my church, Andalusia Baptist Church. This service project involves filling shoe boxes with necessities and toys that get sent to children around the world during Christmas time. My second favorite service project is World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine. I have participated in this twice.

There we helped with the relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina. Both years I was there, my group worked on houses in the mold remediation stages. It was laborious, but inspiring at the same time.
