A very special Christmas treat for some kids who are struggling with homelessness. About 50 formerly homeless children got to enjoy an early Christmas celebration in Torrance. The children were greeted by Santa who presented them with some gifts. They then participated in a gingerbread house decorating session. The families say they are so grateful for this organization. Holliday's Helping Hands hosted the event.
A formerly homeless mother, Akeria Sharp, said, "I'm getting help with housing and things like that. While we're here, they take good care of us. The staff is really great to all of us and our children."
Holliday's Helping Hands founder, Katina Holliday said, "No words can explain how I feel when we're able to be able to be a blessing to our clients and people in the community alike."
Holliday's Helping Hands helps the homeless population by finding them permanent housing and helping them transition into becoming productive citizens by helping them with monthly budgets and job training.
