Holy Family School

The HFS Gazette Blog

A BIG Christmas thank you to Holy Family School from the Giving Bank and our clients!

Christmas giving began a little early this year when the school Christmas tree fundraiser included an option for those purchasing trees to donate them to the Giving Bank.

We are so grateful to those that chose that option! Because of you, we received over 125 trees!

We were able to share with many of our clients and families from Dolores Mission, Our Lady of Guadalupe School Rosehill, and Homeboy industries. We were able to make sure that Our Lady of Guadalupe School had a tree in each classroom. For many students that was the only tree that they were able to help decorate. What a treat that they would not have had, but for your kindness. We also shared with the South Pasadena Teen Center, helping make their space a little brighter. There were so many trees that we were able to provide our good friends, the Carmelite Sisters with trees as well!

We were sent the following from a case manager at Homeboy Industries:

Thank you so much. Really, thank you. The families that had the opportunity to take a tree were excited. For some, this was their first tree.  One particular trainee was overjoyed, “I am broke. I have no money and this tree makes all the difference.”
