La Sala men celebrate Christmas

Migrant workers celebrated Christmas at La Sala with traditional american dinner and some tamales.

On this special dates, they were sharing stories about what they would’ve done with their families in Mexico, how they miss their families, how they celebrated Christmas Eve and other reminders of how far they are from home.

Some of them also talked about their reason for being here and the goals they have for their families in Mexico.

After dinner they received a stocking with toiletries and other practical supplies.

Happy Holidays to them all.
