Reported holiday celebrations, activities
_The Latino Alliance of Northwest Ohio is hosting its holiday
event at Downtown Johnny’s, 513 Jefferson Ave., Toledo, on
Wednesday, December 12, starting at 6:00PM [until 9:00PM].
_The Spanish American Organization (SAO), Toledo, is seeking
nonperishable donations for its annual Holiday and Christmas
Basket Party to be held Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2018,
beginning at 6 p.m., at the home of Phil Barbosa & Lisa Mitchell,
902 Broadway. Cash donations made out to SAO will be accepted. SAO
will provide baskets with food, toys, and clothes for seven
families. The annual tradition begins with a potluck dinner and
gift-wrapping party, as friends and family gather to put together
holiday baskets for families identified by Ss. Peter and Paul
Catholic Church. Then party goers fan out to play Santa’s elves
and visit the unsuspecting families.
_The South Toledo branch library Teen Reading Club
held a holiday drive to collect personal toiletry items to be
donated to the La Posada Family Emergency Shelter. Personal
care items such as shampoo, deodorant, body soap, washing powder,
toilet paper, and others were collected at the library branch
through Dec. 8 for presentation to La Posada one week
South Branch manager Celeste Taylor points out the name La
Posada originated from the Spanish holiday “Las Posadas,”
a nine-day celebration that represents the difficulties Mary and
Joseph, the parents of Jesus, faced in search of a room while
traveling to Bethlehem. La Posada has provided shelter to
more than 2,000 families since opening nearly two decades ago.
