Chance encounter leads to donation

DOWNEY - What happens when the coordinator of TLC Family Resource Center stands in line behind a volunteer from Fairy Godparents Organization, a nonprofit serving a neighboring community?Local kids identified as homeless receive a new soft blanket and pillow. During a brief chance encounter with a representative from Fairy Godparents, TLC coordinator Luz Perez discussed available support services for children at TLC. The woman was so touched and impressed by the TLC Center that she offered to donate care packages for children who may not get anything otherwise. Fairy Godparents donated and delivered more than 75 blanket care packages, which included brand new blankets, handmade pillows and stuffed animals for children. They will be given to children in need this holiday season. "We hope this story warms your heart," Perez said. "Happy holidays from TLC."
