Members of Las Candelas joined in the celebration at the annual VMH Care Christmas party for the clients of the Glen Roberts Child Study Center earlier this month. The Las Candelas members had previously gift wrapped more than 500 packages for the children and were on hand to distribute them at the party and to assist with craft making.
Las Candelas is a Glendale-based organization of 40 women who provide programs and volunteer service for emotionally disturbed children. The group has had a long association with VMH Care and was instrumental in the founding of the center more than 50 years ago.
