The youth group thanks the parish and all the people who collaborated in the campaign of toys and books donation to families receiving food at UVic's Family Center. Our intention was to distribute the gifts on Christmas week, but because of the snow, this was not possible. However, we delivered the gifts in the first week of January. The delivery time of food and from 2pm to 3:30pm, which coincided with the hour of the youth classes, but I could count on the help of one of them who managed to get there close to 3:00. The parents and children were very happy and grateful. A total of 68 gifts were delivered and the remaining 3 were given to the Family Center, for activities that take place there. One mom commented: "It doesn't matter the day; a gift always fills with joy the heart of a child."
Thank you for your generosity and kindness.
