Trevor's wish honored; BR food bank donations
BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — You might recall Trevor Sims--the story of an 11 year old boy who's dying wish was to make sure the hungry in Baton Rouge had something to eat. He lost his battle with cancer back in October, but people in the Capital City still remember his legacy today. Representative Regina Barrow dedicated the 'Annual Gift of Christmas' program at the Interdenominational Faith Assembly Church in Trevor's honor this year. Over 100 people showed up and donated to the Greater Baton Rouge Food bank. Trevor's family said he would be happy to see so much support.
Allison Sims, Trevor's Mom, said, "It blows my mind that everyone's so touched by trevor's story, and his heart for people and keep his wishes alive, and it puts a smile on my face." State Representative of District 29 Regina Barrow said, "I wanted to see what was it that I could do to somehow play into it or add to his vision, and so I came up with the idea of everyone bringing a canned good."
Trevor's story was featured all across the United States. Senator Landrieu acknowledged Trevor's contribution and the Metro Council re-named a bridge in his honor.
