A blaze erupted early Monday that destroyed a building where the city’s Department of Aging rents space.  Approximately 2,000 Christmas gift bags were soaked with water and destroyed. Presents included sweaters, socks, DVDs, lamps and food.

The gifts were part of a Secret Santa-type program called Project CARE, which matches city and Los Angeles Police Department employees with senior citizens in need. Most of the seniors in the program are low-income, live alone or don’t have family nearby.

The Dream Center is stepping in to help meet this important need.  We are partnering with the city of Los Angeles to replace the damaged gift bags.  Please give a gift below to help make their holiday merry and bright!
