Christmas at the Casa

Christmas at Casa de Los Pobres

quiltsEach year, the sisters of the Casa hold a “Christmas distribution.”  This year the event was held on two days, because of the large number of people in need.  The Distribution Day begins with mass outside, beside the “Living Nativity Scene”, and each family receives a special bag of food, new shoes, toys, blankets and a chicken!  Children receive bags of candy donated by other children in San Diego, from the Halloween Candy drive sponsored by St. Brigid parish.  The many gifts are made possible by the generosity of our donors, and bring Christmas joy to the poor!
