On December 26, 2001, The Hartford Courant featured an article on the Christmas dinner and gift giving for those in need at the Shiloh Baptist Church in Hartford, CT. "What distinguished this dinner from previous years, was the increase in the number of volunteers, said the Rev. King T. Hayes, pastor of Albany Avenue church. Forty-eight had signed up to help Hayes said... 'Some are Jewish, some from the Unitarian Church and they are of all races... The bottom line is helping somebody. They feel the joy of helping somebody.'"
