MILL VALLEY, CA
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The RAOC group at Our Lady of Mount Carmel contributed to a parish-wide Advent night extravaganza by making 139 hearty care packages for homeless veterans in Marin County—three times as many as we expected to make. The packages included food, toiletries, socks, gift cards, candy and a hand-created Christmas card for each veteran. Many thanks to the scores of volunteers who made this Act of love a huge success. We were all touched to be able to serve our veterans in need.
