Dear LOL families and friends,
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
As we draw closer to the main event of Christmas, we have prepared the way for Jesus’ arrival by feeding the hungry. Last Thursday was the culmination of our 2017 Christmas Feed the Hungry. It was a beautiful one because we also celebrated our LOL friend, Eden’s big birthday. She chose to celebrate her special day with the God’s special people!
Our 2017 Christmas Feed the Homeless Events were a HUGE success!!! We were able to deliver 611 care boxes to our less fortunate brethren and served 540 meals (dinner-2 and breakfast) at the Winter Shelter in Sacred Heart Church. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU donors, Reyes CocaCola and volunteers!!!
The total donation collected was $4,267.00! AWESOME!!! I am speechless and greatly overwhelmed by your generosity! This quadrupled my fund raising goal for our LOL events. I appreciate you all. Thank you for allowing us to continue our mission to feed the hungry. LOL is truly a blessings to all. Let us share and spread the blessings and love for the poor. To all new donors and volunteers, WELCOME and THANK YOU. I hope to see you again in our future events and please share your experience to others.
Please continue to pray for our sick friends and families. We will continue to dedicate our events to them.
The pictures of the events have been posted, please check our gallery page.
