Local Organizations Need Help

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

It's the holiday season, and a couple of local organizations need your help.

It doesn't cost that much to make a difference in someone's life.

One gift can change the world, that's why Trinity Baptist Church is partnering up with operation Christmas child.

Operation Christmas Child State Coordinator, Rhonda Blankenship said, "What it is, is you get shoe boxes, and you fill them with miscellaneous items from household items hygiene items."

Blakenship said they put a gospel message in each box.

"And you put it in a box and seal it up, and it goes through out the world to children who have never received gifts most likely," Blankenship said.

Another local organization that's an Independent Riding Association is looking to give back to the community as well.

A Roaddog Member, Angelo Bianco said, "We're just a bunch of guys who come together and our goal is to give Christmas to children that may not have Christmas."

Bianco said they're selling Roaddog shirts, and sweatshirts to buy Christmas presents for children

"After we collect all the money on December 6th, and December 7th we write a check to Walmart, and Walmart gives us all the toys and we deliver it to the Salvation Army," said Bianco.

Bianco said last year they raised $25,000, and are hoping to raise at least that amount this year.

If you want to help donate a shoebox, Trinity Baptist Church is collecting them through next Monday morning at their church.

If you want to donate or buy a shirt from the Roaddogs go to kulr-8 and click on connections.
