Editor, the Advocate:
The 2013 Faithful Angels (formerly The Industrial Worker's Committee) continues to be a success with your help. More than 125 children were treated to hot dogs, soft drinks and entertainment. The children enjoyed the craft table, manicures, face painting and getting chic braids. Several donors also provided bikes for some of these children.
Santa and our volunteers gave toys, clothing and shoes specially selected for these children with their families by their side. We want to thank all our gracious donors and volunteers; the Industrial Worker's members and friends; Marie Hawes, of Port O'Connor; employees of Prosperity Bank; Catholic War Veterans members and every person who donated money and/or their time to make this event special for the children. We also want to especially thank the Victoria Advocate for its continued support and giving us a voice.
The joy and memories you gave each child are priceless.
Mona Gonzales, the Faithful Angels and the Industrial Workers' Committee, Victoria
