Love ought to show itself in deeds over and above words. ~St Ignatius de Loyola
Let us NOT love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth….~1John 3:18.
Dear LOL families and friends,
Our first event on Dec 1 and 2 was a BIG success!!! We were able to deliver 611 care boxes to our less fortunate brethren in Downtown LA, Pomona, West Covina, Long Beach and Orange county. THANK YOU!
As of December 2, our monetary donation was $3,307.00! I am speechless and greatly overwhelmed with your generosity! This tripled my fund raising goal I set each time we do our LOL events. I appreciate you all. Let us continue our mission to feed the hungry. As I always say, LOL is a gift that continues to give and receive.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, donors and volunteers!!! Share the love and blessings to your families and friends.
Kindly forward my email to those who would be interested in helping the poor. Below please find the schedule of the upcoming events. Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you again on Thursday, Dec 14. Please be at Sacred Heart Church (344 Workman St, Covina, CA 91723) at 6:30pm.
We are dedicating our events to our families and friends who could not join us due to illness. Let us pray for them.
