During the Christmas season Homeboy has organizations whom “adopt” trainees and their families. These organizations will be giving gifts to the parents and children. We have 38 families who have been adopted by the Cathedral Archdiocese of LA. Each family will be receiving multiple boxes of gifts and a box of food. The location of this distribution will be in the back parking lot of Homeboy’s. We need volunteers to help with the distribution of these gifts and food boxes.
