The north winds will blow, And we shall have snow - well, maybe not in LA, but it will be cold on the streets.  
 
Can you provide a warm jacket for a homeless patient leaving ER or urgent care this winter?
 
   
Network Partners:   
 
The Boyle Heights Chamber of Commerce chose Angel  Interfaith  Network as the beneficiary of their Christmas Giveaway this year. The  breakfast was held on December 11th at Casa Fina, a wonderful restaurant in Boyle Heights. Instead of the toys that they usually give, we asked for and were given gift cards for our families.
   
Those We Serve:
Stephanie , a patient at the ophthalmology clinic, was going to a domestic violence shelter with her five-week-old son Elijah. Her social worker requested warm clothing, diapers, blankets, and a seat pad for the baby's car seat. AIN was able to meet those needs with a clinic curbside drop off.
 
Mr. Han was seen in the emergency room and was going to a nursing home for rehabilitation for a leg injury. He was concerned that if he did not pay his rent while he was in the nursing home, he would lose his home. The social worker called to inquire if we had funds to assist Mr. Han with his rent for the month. AIN was able to help with $200.
 
Darren
had a job, IF he had appropriate foot wear. Raquel received a call from a social worker requesting size 13 steel toe boots. Thanks to Covenant Presbyterian Church's congregation, we were able to help.  They did a shoe drive for AIN as shoes are a need for many of our homeless patients.
Darren was so happy to receive the boots and a new pair of socks 
     
Urgent Needs:
 
Underwear, socks all sizes, and Ensure.
