Dear Angels…It’s Our 11th Year.....time to Celebrate!!
We are so proud to celebrate the 11th year of Maryvale’s Angels. It has been a true blessing to see how amazing our community comes together in times of need even when it has been an economic hardship for most. And for that we are forever grateful!
Without further ado, welcome to Maryvale Angels 2016.
The girls of Maryvale are dynamic, smart and amazing and deserve a holiday celebration with their Maryvale family during what is a difficult time for them to be away from their own families. Thank you to our awesome Angels who have contributed in the past. We look forward to your continued support again this year. For all of our new Angels here is a brief summary and info on how you can bring joy this holiday season.
Maryvale is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Founded in 1856 by the Daughters of Charity it has been serving children of the Greater Los Angeles area for over 150 years. It is a licensed residential center for deeply wounded girls who have been removed from their homes and placed by the Department of Children and Family Services and the Probation Department. Maryvale provides housing, meals, counseling and education along with many other specialized services and opportunities for the girls in residence.
Being an Angel to one of these girls is so simple and extremely rewarding. All you have to do is go to our secured PayPal link and donate.
Each girl gives “Santa” their wish list of three gifts. For example:
Jen, age 12:
1. Silver Charm Bracelet, DVD - 2. A Cinderella Story, Twin bed comforter - 3. Mickey Mouse
It is our goal to be able to purchase all 3 of the gifts named by each girl through your generous donations! Santa delivers one gift at the Holiday party and the other two are opened on Christmas morning!
It's that easy! You donate, we shop!
Trust us, it is worth your efforts. These girls are so amazingly strong, smart and beautiful on the inside and out. You can't help but fall in love with them when you see their wide eyes when Santa walks in the door, their smiles and laughter as they strut their stuff on the dance floor, and their tears of joy when they open their presents.
I encourage you all to come to the Maryvale holiday party and meet the girls, and
see firsthand the difference You made just by donating!!
So please be an Angel to one of these precious girls by making a donation. Your participation in helping Maryvale to make this holiday merry for these girls is greatly
In Love and Light,
The Maryvale Angels Team
