Our great friends at Covenant House California reach out to at-risk homeless youth living on the streets and offer them hope and opportunities to turn their lives around. They help abused or neglected youth who have nowhere else to go. Christmas Day is a very difficult and rather emotional day for the youth at Covenant House. Each year they try and have Santa visit in the morning and it greatly helps cheer the youth. For the holidays, they would like someone to sponsor Santa for their residents on Christmas morning. The Big Sunday community has helped with this for years. Will you be this year’s “Secret Santa”? To help, contact Sister Margaret at email@example.com or call (323) 461-3131.
