Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

The Margaret Aylward Center opened 2 years ago to help the poor, immigrant population of the Pico Rivera area in Los Angeles County.

The Center offers ESL classes, Parenting, Family Counselling, Citizenship Program, Arts and Crafts, Legal Aide and Emergency Rental and Medical Assistance. The Center is operated by 3 Catholic Sisters and a host of volunteers.

Last year we ran a Christmas Bazaar to raise funds for the Center. Sisters, volunteers and many friends knit and crochet a variety of items for this Fund Raising Activity.

This year, we will have the Xmas Bazaar on the weekend of Dec. 10-12. If anyone would like to donate items for this, we would be very grateful. The motto of the Center is "WOMEN HELPING WOMEN MAKE A BETTER WORLD".

Thank you!
Sister Maureen Campbell
