Sherry Kerr, who has been on two mission trips with Roberts, said she encourages everyone she knows to donate to the organization.
“What better things is there to do at Christmas than give to children in need,” said Kerr, of Dallas.

Kerr, 44, office administrator at Marietta-based The Cooper Firm, said she enjoyed playing with the children, who range in age from 3 to 20 years old.
