Network Partners:  
Every year, the LAC+USC Department of Spiritual Care
gives each patient in the hospital a lap robe at Christmas time.  
They call it Acts of Kindness and Angel Interfaith Network, St. Camillus Center and other community groups are privileged to be a part of it. Chaplains and volunteers will personally deliver quilts to about 600 patients on December 18th.
 
Would you or your group like to crochet, knit, sew or quilt  
(36" by 48") lap robes for this year distribution?  
 
Call Raquel to arrange delivery to the AIN Gate House office (323-409-6923).
Contact Martin in the Department of Spiritual Care at  
(323) 409-4715 or 
 
Fr Chris Ponnet said, 
"Any quilts not given that day are used by chaplains throughout the year for palliative care patients and special need situations. Families often take them home in memorial to their loved one who died.  
A real blessing."

and her circle of volunteers have made

  Those we serve:
 
Carleen's twin girls  arrived prematurely. Carleen and her 18-month-old son were already homeless. Their social worker requested two baby baskets and car seats for the twins, and diapers for big brother. The babies had to stay in the hospital several weeks, but now have joined their mother and brother in a shelter. Thanks to our donors and volunteers, Angel Interfaith Network was able to give this mother some much needed support. 
 
Victor , a patient in the Ortho Clinic, faces permanent disability. He is distraught that he will not be able to provide for his family. He recently applied for disability and his social worker reassured him that Angel Interfaith Network would help him. We were able to provide $200 toward his rent, help with utility bills and some food coupons for his family of five. Victor was relieved and grateful for the assistance.

Urgent Needs:
 
Men's and women's underwear in all sizes,  
but especially the larger sizes up to 2X-3X.
