Sabita and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous gifts to the 39 children at the Hispanic Technology Center in Flint. Each child received a toy, full outfit and a Spanish children's book. This Christmas was very special for these children because they come from families that are at the poverty level and some of them just came in to the United States. These children would not have received gifts for Christmas if it wasn't for your passion to share some of your blessings.When Sabita and I visited the Center we left with tears in our eyes and we knew in our hearts that we had to do something and we knew we could depend on our Alliance members. Each child also received a new coat, hat and gloves from St. Luke New Life Center. St. Luke's also provided full groceries for each of the families the week of Christmas, this was given to them from the food pantry at St. Luke. I called Sister Carol and Sister Judy and they both said they would help the children and their families.
