Presents to give away

Posted by Mary Jo on December 23, 2007, 7:53 am

As the result of the earnings from the Christmas Tree Fiesta, over 100 presents were bought to be given away to the less fortunate kids of LaManzanilla. We've divided the town into 5 sections, with Mexican Moms familiar with the areas, driving with us, advising us where to deliver. Each volunteer would drive to the homes together knock on the door and discreetly ask the mom ages and gender of her kids. Then go to the car, pick out an appropriate gift. What a great way to practice some Spanish and have fun besides. It would be great to have more than 5 people to deliver presents!
WHERE? Pick up toys at Cafe de Flores
WHEN? 1 pm Christmas Eve Day, December 24
HOW? Would need a car
WHY? An appropriate use of some of the funds from the Christmas tree fiesta
WHO? Please contact Mary Mayberry 351-7376 or Mary Jo 351-5398
