The holidays are a time of giving and no one does that better than Marlene Marshall. For almost 10 years Marlene has been making these colorful afghans for all of the children in our shelter. Not only does she take the time, all year long, to create these works of art, she also supplies all of the materials at her own expense. Haven Hills has been the recipient of many acts of kindness this holiday season, and we are incredibly grateful for every one of them. Thank you, Marlene, from all of us at Haven Hills and warm wishes for a joyful holiday season.
Woodland Hills, California Girl Scouts, and students from St. Mel’s Catholic Church also in Woodland Hills, collected dozens of pairs of new pajamas for the families at Haven Hills. Along with the pajamas came a generous donation of plush blankets! This is what the season is all about. Thank You Girl Scouts and St. Mel’s!
