Lack of leadership nearly did in this mission of the Knoxville Council of Churches but new efforts and a shift in the leadership model have saved the program for this year. A team leadership approach is being stressed. Ida McLease of Knoxville Methodist Church will serve as the overall team
leader this year.
Letters to area businesses and organizations asking for donations have been sent and the group met on October 15th to iron out a few more details.
The Knoxville Council of Churches next meets on November 4, 2014 at Community Bible Church.
