Christmas at Casa de Los Pobres
The ladies of All Hallows parish in La Jolla, California spend each Tuesday during the year putting together over 100 quilts to distribute to the Casa at Christmas. A quilt is each family’s prized possession! (See how the youngest child in the photo clutches her quilt!)
Jackie Horton (a Director of the Non-Profit USA Group) knitted hats and scarves for the children.
A special feature at the Casa each Christmas is the “Living Nativity” scene. The people bring live animals to use in the scene.
Shoes, toys, a bag of groceries, and a blanket or quilt are given to each family.
