From left, Lexi Laconi, Julie Osborne, Toto and Bobby Hayden joined approximately 350 volunteers for the third annual Christmas Gift Indianapolis — a Christmas party to benefit the homeless men, women and children of Indianapolis. Two thousand adults and children were provided with coats, blankets, toiletries, haircuts, shoes and toys. Guests also enjoyed a delicious dinner. The event was organized by Carmel residents Hayden and Laconi and sponsored by Cardboard Box Ministries. Hayden founded the organization after living in a cardboard box as a heroin addict for almost 10 years. Today, he and Laconi travel the U.S. to share Hayden’s story of hope and redemption through their Christian faith.
