Children Are Angels From Heaven


Candy Drive for Christmas

Each year in early November, St. Paulís School has a candy drive for my trip to Calcutta. This year, the children donated 175 pounds of every kind of candy you could ever think of. It was by far too much candy to take with me in my luggage to Calcutta as I am only allowed two 70 lb. bags as luggage. I sorted out the candy as to what was best to bring with me for the children of Calcutta, and the rest would be donated to other places around the world. The children of St. Paulís School entrusted the candy to my care and I felt a great responsibly to make sure it went to the right places and to those who would appreciate it most. It was a lot of work, but everything worked out perfectly and I received many beautiful thank you letters for the candy.

The candy was delivered to the following:

1. Bravo Company # 73063, U.S. Marines, Iraq
2. Walter Reed Army Hospital, Washington D.C.
3. Brooke Army Medical Center, Ft. Sam Houston, Texas
4. Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, USA Medical Operations, Germany
5. Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA
6. Childrens Hospital, Boston, MA
7. Polish children in Krakow, Poland
8. Nazareth House, Boston, MA
9. St. Charles Childrenís Home, Rochester, NH
10. Hundreds of Indian children in Calcutta

Many thanks to the members and children of St. Paulís School for their generosity and hard work!
