Every Christmas, we at the Giving Bank, witness the joy of the season as we meet our Homeboy Industries and Dolores Mission families. The parents come with no expectations, just that they received a call to say that their “presents” are ready for pick-up. One family knocked on our door, came in and was amazed that our offices were filled with toys. They took their little bundle to the car and when the mom returned, we brought out her daughter’s pink bicycle which was hidden around the corner. “Are you sure that is for us?”, she exclaimed. She was brought to tears and so were we. We are blessed to be part of this ministry and with your support our office and hearts continue to be filled. Please consider adopting a family this Christmas by calling us at 626-403-6140.
