Adopt A Family volunteers visited Immaculate Heart High School (IHHS) recently to pick up the piles of nonperishable food and toiletries donated by Immaculate Heart High School and Middle School students, faculty and staff.
For 28 years, the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels has sponsored the Adopt-a-Family program, which provides Christmas blessings to families on Skid Row, who would otherwise be without food, basic necessities, and gifts for the holiday.
Immaculate Heart Middle School has supported the program since its founding, and this year, the whole Immaculate Heart school community brought in so many items that the Adopt-a-Family truck couldn’t carry all of them! Once the program’s truck was full, a school van had to help carry the rest of the collection to the drop off point.
On Saturday, December 15, Immaculate Heart families, as well as faculty and staff, will gather at the in order to help deliver these goods to over 500 families in need. Typically, over 100 students and their families get up early in the morning to be part of the special day, and we’re expecting similar turnout this year.
IHHS thanks all students and families whose generosity made this collection a success, and to everyone who will volunteer their time for the delivery!
