Need Help Packing and Muchísimas Gracias


The rice, sugar and beans are in! These are just part of the food we’ll be handing out to those in need in our community on Christmas. We could sure use your help packing foodstuffs into smaller bags, so we’re ready for the 24th. If you are able to help, please call Jorge (he speaks English very well) at 6691-10-07-44. And invite your friends! This is a great way to do some good for an hour or two while catching up with friends in conversation!

As Christmas gets closer, we will need help sorting clothes as well. Thank you for pitching in!

If you need directions on how to get to Quince Letras to help with packing or to load trucks and join a convoy on Christmas Eve morning, visit:

Thanks to your help, Desayuno de los Pollos set yet another record this year. In the silent auction we collected 27,000 pesos, which will enable us to buy whole chickens and despensas for those 2800 or so families we feed each Christmas. I don’t yet have the overall numbers, but families in the invasiones will be happy! Below I will list those sponsors that I know of; if you helped and wish to be added to the list, please let me know.

I have a nice story to tell. Jeanett Sanz, interior designer, made a donation to the auction and came to the breakfast. The winner of her auction item is now wanting to contract her to update her home. Please put the Chicken Breakfast on your calendar for next year! Your goodwill can help build your business!
