Located in Southampton County and part of the Blackwater Baptist Association, 22 students traveled to Walmart in Franklin the week before Christmas.
Youth group leaders, Rachel and Silvano Piferi, armed the students with envelopes containing a $5 gift card. The students then would hand a stranger an envelope, wish them Merry Christmas, and disappear.
From the article:
Although the group gave away a total of 65 envelopes, totaling $325, Piferi said that it’s not about being recognized for their actions.
“Sometimes, we don’t even hear how it affected someone or if it meant anything (to them). I really think our youth understands that, and I just see their eyes light up when they make a difference in someone else’s day. They get to see what a small act of kindness can really mean.
“That is why we do this.”
