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!

Join Me November 26

LAM’s Annual Thanksgiving celebration is a wonderful day here at the Mission. The well-oiled machine of volunteers and celebrities dish up plate upon plate of turkey (3000 pounds), sesame and garlic roasted mashed potatoes (700 pounds), green beans (800 pounds), giblet gravy (80 gallons) and pie (600) while others pour and serve drinks. After serving about 4,000 meals, we were able to give out about 650 bibles, over 1,400 beautiful blankets and over 1,200 tarps in preparation for the colder winter months.”
