San Diego, CA (December 5, 2017) – Interfaith Community Services is preparing to welcome The Larry Himmel Neighborhood Foundation to its Family Housing Program Holiday Party. The Foundation will visit Interfaith families twice this month – once when the children of Interfaith will write their Christmas wishes and “mail” them to the North Pole, and a second time to surprise the children with their requested gifts, including a visit from Santa himself.
What: Interfaith Community Services’ Family Housing Program Holiday Party
When: Christmas Wish Writing Event – Tuesday, December 5th at 6:00 p.m.
Delivery of Gifts and Santa Visit -Tuesday, December 12th at 6:00 p.m.
Where: Interfaith Community Services, 425 North Date Street, Escondido, CA 92025 (located in the Neighborhood Healthcare building)
Interviews available with participating parents and children, as well as both Greg Anglea, Executive Director of Interfaith Community Services and Miles Himmel, son of Larry Himmel and Treasurer of The Larry Himmel Neighborhood Foundation.
“This is such a heart-warming example of how organizations in our community can collaborate to make the holiday season a little brighter for those in need,” said Greg Anglea, CEO of Interfaith Community Services. “We are so thankful that The Larry Himmel Neighborhood Foundation is giving back to the families in our housing program this year and can’t wait to see the smiles on the children’s faces when they see Santa!”
Last year alone, 1,351 individuals and families participated in one of Interfaith Community Services’ housing programs. Of those, 90% who completed the program overcame their homelessness and obtained permanent housing. Housing programs at Interfaith also include specialized resources, case management and supportive services to ensure that the individuals and families not only achieve housing stability, but also self-sufficiency.
“We are so excited to be helping out those in our community at Interfaith,” said Miles Himmel, Treasurer of The Larry Himmel Neighborhood Foundation. “Being able to continue my dad’s legacy through the Foundation, and to do it in a fun way, is something Larry would have loved.”
For more information in regards to attending either event on December 5th or December 12th, please contact Lindsay Marcil – Communications Coordinator, at (206) 484-0578 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
