Donate to Support Divine Mercy Orphanage – The Children at the Border’s Angels to Angels Program

In a world of vitriol and division, live scores of orphaned children in the border region of Tecate. The boys and girls of Divine Mercy Orphanage are professionally cared for by the love and dedication of the Daughters of Divine Mercy and the staff and volunteers. Love is abundant but so is uncertainty, fear and the anxiety of our times. The children could use a lift over the holidays with donations of school supplies, clothing and of course, toys. The staff could use household supplies and hygiene products, as well as funding to complete necessary facility requirements and repairs. You can donate items at the campus of Immaculate Conception School. Also, direct support of funds can be contributed to the McKenna Foundation, Attn: Angels to Angels Project, PO Box 4022, Whittier, CA 90607. Please spread the word, and the love!
