The ’17 Epiphany Celebration Was A Big Success
The line stretched as far as the eye could see. Hundreds of migrant families were waiting for our Epiphany Celebration to begin at the Galilee Center on Sunday, January 9th. When the doors opened, the crowd surged in to get new shoes and socks for all the kids as well as warm blankets. Those of us who had travelled to the center in Coachella to help distribute the shoes happily helped each child select just the right pair — usually checking to make sure mom and dad approved. There were a lot of heart-warming smiles as the kids took the blue shoe boxes and held on to them like they were never going to let go! While we didn’t come by camel and none of us are kings … our Gifts of the Magi were special to hundreds of kids.
