At the Gabriel’s House Christmas Party on December 21, volunteers, staff, current residents, and a few past residents celebrated this holy season Santa made a special appearance with sacks full of gift for all the children—courtesy of many local organizations and individuals. The smiles on the children warmed the hearts of everyone in the room. Then it was the ladies turn to receive gifts donated by a very special volunteer. There were slippers and robes, wallets, and jewelry to choose from! The ladies’ smiles were just as heartwarming! Pastor Mike Collazo led Christmas carols, and everyone joined in to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Thanks to everyone who made this Christmas so full of joy for the women and children of Gabriel’s House.
