Tracy Brown-Gallardo, who once worked at the Mission Education Center, visited recently and noticed kids — many of whom have arrived recently from Central America — without jackets or proper shoes. Frustrated, she posted on Facebook. In no time, her friend Maria X. Martinez had set up a GoFundMe for the kids, and the two were on their way to giving the 80 to 100 kids at the Mission Education Center a good holiday. With help from teachers and others, they will be buying toys, shoes and jackets to give out at a party later this month.

You can help by donating to their GoFundMe page, or following the links to help with wrapping the gifts on Monday, Dec. 10.
