Thanks for Donating to the Giving Tree.
Thank you to the All Saints community for your generous donations to our Giving Tree this past Christmas. The Dagane Family was overwhelmed and overjoyed with all of the lovely things you donated.
The Patterson and Moore families were blessed to have an amazing visit with the family while delivering the gifts. We had the opportunity to deliver the gifts to the family the Friday before Christmas, and the Dagane family, as well as some extended family members, greeted us warmly upon our arrival. They also had a neighbor girl visiting who was able to translate for us. It was wonderful to have her to explain certain things.
During our visit, we were able to set up a crib for their new baby girl, born in early December, and make up the crib with new sheets and blankets, as well as give the baby some nice new clothing.
The parents were thrilled to receive new items for the kitchen and for their apartment. They had only the very basic items for their kitchen, so the additional items you provided were much appreciated.
At one point during our visit, while we were handing out the gifts to the little ones, Mr. Dagane was moved to tears to see such joy in the faces of his children. The kids were so excited by all the new clothing items and toys that were just for them! Again, they were so very grateful and happy to be so blessed, and could not express enough how much they appreciated your generosity. It was a heartwarming and rewarding experience that all who donated should share in.
Again, thank you all so very much for your continued support of the Catholic Charities refugee families that the All Saints School community has been able to provide over the Holiday Season.
Bless you all.
