Veterans and their Families Enjoy a Christmas Celebration

Each December Holy Cross participates with the San Jose Veterans Center to throw a Christmas party for Veterans and their families.  Gifts are purchased by the congregation for both parents and kids.  This year First Immanuel Lutheran Church graciously provided the facility for the party.  Great food and great fun for these very deserving families....

Recently we received this note of thanks from the Director of the San Jose Vet Center:

Thank You Holy Cross!

December 16, 2019

Dear Holy Cross Lutheran Church and Children’s Center,

Thank you for your dedication and love towards our veterans and their families through your No One Wants program. This year’s Veterans and their Families Christmas Celebration held in downtown San Jose at First Immanuel Lutheran Church on Saturday, December 14th served 241 veterans and their family members in need, with many thanks to Holy Cross for providing gifts. candy and gift cards for everyone who attended as well as volunteering the day of the party to help serve the meal and distribute the gifts.

As you know, the San Jose Vet Center provides free-of-charge counseling and group psychotherapy for veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder with associated anxiety and secondary depression incurred in past wars and current war zones.  The month of November 2019 we served well over 943 veterans and their family members.

If it were not for you providing your unselfish dedication and generosity, the San Jose Vet Center would not be able to accomplish what we did on Saturday. We sincerely appreciate your on-going support of our local combat and MST veterans.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
