Through the generosity of our parishioners we were able to make 3 elementary school and one high school student backpacks.  I took the backpacks to City of Angels, a program of the Los Angeles Unified School District that works with homeless children. To say that they were delighted to get them would be an extreme understatement.  The director, Rami, was so excited, that she posed for pictures with me and the backpacks!  She wouldn't let me leave before she had hand-written a thank you note, which is posted with the pictures on the Charity Committee bulletin board outside the church office.  Thank you to all who donated!
