2 Phyllis M. Taylor Our project for Christmas this year will be to help homeless women and children at Hotel Hope operated by the Presentation Sisters, founders of SCR School and located in the Broadmoor area. The Sisters provide short term lodging and management to get them on their feet. They secure an apartment for them and help them to get ready for their move. So these families need everything. The Sisters wish list of supplies can be anything for the home and personal supplies such as paper goods, nonperishable food, dishes, towels, soap, shampoo and $25 Wal-Mart gift cards, anything you could think of to help these families transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Anything would be appreciated. Our drive will be from Nov. 19 to Dec. 4. All items can be left in church or the Parish Center. The Sisters ask that nothing be wrapped. We thank you in advance for your generosity. HOTEL HOPE HACIENDO LUGAR PARA LA ESPERANZA Nuestro proyecto para Navidad este año será ayudar a mujeres y niños sin hogar que están alojados en el Hotel Hope, operado por las Hermanas de la Presentación, fundadoras de nuestro colegio parroquial, y que está localizado en el vecindario Broadmoor de New Orleans. Las Hermanas proporcionan alojamiento a corto plazo y administración para que estas personas puedan independizarse. Las Hermanas les proveen con un apartamento y los ayudan a prepararse para su mudanza. Estas familias necesitan de todo. Tienen necesidad de cualquier cosa para el hogar y cosas personales tales como artículos de papel, alimentos no perecederos, platos, toallas, jabón, champú y tarjetas de Wal-Mart de $25, y cualquier otra cosa que usted pueda pensar que ayude a estas familias para la transición de no tener hogar a la autosuficiencia. Cualquier cosa será muy apreciada. Recaudaremos estos artículos del 19 de noviembre al 4 de diciembre. Pueden traer estos artículos a la iglesia o al centro parroquial. Las Hermanas piden que nada se envuelva en papel de regalo. Les agradecemos de antemano su generosidad.
