2011 Los Ojos de la Familia
Christmas Basket Give-Away

 

 Description: baskets

 

This year's Annual Christmas Basket give-away was a tremendous success ! LODLF gave away 150 baskets along with 150 gift bags to families in need during this Holiday Season. The baskets contained a full Christmas Dinner and lots of other food and house hold items. The Baskets were given out all around Albuquerque and Santa Fe by dozens of volunteers and LODLF members. This event would not be possible without the generosity of all our Corporate and family sponsorships, LODLF members and volunteers. Thank you all so very much.!
 

Story #1

One lady who received a basket is ill; her health is not good at all.  She is struggling just to live and has to have a caregiver to help her.    Angela and John had to meet her son, who takes care of her (Anthony Salas) at McDonalds in Bernalillo, only because they are currently staying with the in laws due to no heat....  This basket of food means the world to them....

Story #2

One single mommy cried so hard: she has three kids and both grandparents living with her. She is working full time, school full time and couldn't afford any presents this year. So appreciative!
 Story #3
 
Another woman cried hard. She moved to Rio Rancho from New York to be close to her sister, and her sister moved away, and her husband died in house left her all alone and has no children. She has had multiple surgeries and is now wheelchair-bound. She said "we were angels and that God is never late."

Each team had stories like this,

Story #4

I have been receiving the most wonderful feedback about the Christmas Baskets that Los Ojos de la Familia delivered to many of the folks I referred.   Everyone has been thrilled and truly overwhelmed, not only by the baskets but by the kindness and friendliness of the people who delivered them. What a fabulous program!  Thank you so much for letting us be involved!
