It was a chilly day in Manassas December 11, but just  inside Catholic Charities Migration and Refugee Services office in Manassas, guests are greeted with the warmth of smiles and kindness of the staff.

Families showing up for coats were overjoyed at the availability of hats, gloves and toys.

Rebecca Boak, community engagement specialist said, ““It was really good to see so many people come and be so grateful for what we gave to them. We gave coats and then some people were also able to take a toy, so it was nice. There was a little boy who got a soccer ball and he was really excited about it so it was great to see how happy they were.”
