in the recent Interview with KTLA 5, Laughlin also shared his experience supporting Project Angel Food and how the nonprofit helped him. Although some outlets said this was his first TV appearance after prison, his first official TV appearance was actually in the Christmas special, When Hope Calls, on GAC Family.
Her interview was conducted during the Project Angel Food Lead with Love 3 telecast. KTLA reports.
“They welcomed me with open arms at a time when I was feeling particularly sad and broken,” she said during the interview, tears welling up in her eyes. “That’s how I found a home here and I feel like they did that for me and that’s why I’m so proud to be here and work with this organization because they really care about them. “It’s really a community. It’s about more than just feeding people, it’s about loving people and helping people. And I think that’s so important and I’m so proud to be a part of Project Angel Food.”
She shared that supporting Project Angel Food was “one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.”
Laughlin explained that he packages groceries, but especially enjoys delivering.
“I have to work everywhere,” he says. I packed lots of muesli and lots of fruit. … I like to make the delivery as best as possible. I have the same delivery route and see the same people once a week. And it’s great to make that connection with those people. Often they cannot leave their homes. They are somewhat isolated, especially during a pandemic.
He said Project Angel Food helps people who are “at the lowest point in their lives. They are facing a serious illness or have lost their job during the pandemic. Project Angel Food is here for you. This is a community. This is a family.”
The executive director of A When Calls the Heart said the interview was about “the importance of second chances”.
“When Calls the Heart” executive producer Brian Bird shared the interview on Facebook, writing, “Really worth watching… from our friend Lori Laughlin. The importance and power of second chances in our world. Get your Kleenex ready!”
One person, Darlene McAdams, replied: “Everyone deserves a second chance. I pray that he will know God because He can bring him back and give him the joy of forgiveness and grace. We all fall short.
Margie Mijares replied: “I 💕💞💕💞💖💖 absolutely love this!!! I believe in second chances and bringing people back to a right relationship with God and friends. We are going to bring them back to life!!! »
Erin Krakow, star of Bird and When Calls the Heart, has expressed her interest in Laughlin’s return to the series.
However, when GAC Family first announced that Laughlin would be joining the When Hope Calls spinoff, Crown Media made it clear that Laughlin would not be returning to Hallmark.
