Thanks to so may of you who donated over the past month! Because of your generosity, School Shoes were delivered to more than 260 children in La Limonada over the past few days!
About 60 children on “The Other Side” were invited to a special Christmas bowling party over the weekend where all of them had the opportunity to bowl for the first time in their lives. After bowling they had hot dogs for lunch and then were given their school shoes. They were so thankful!
More than 200 children received their shoes at a gathering at the original school in La Limonada yesterday. And with extra donations that were received we were able to provide all of the teachers with a Christmas bonus for all their hard work throughout the school year.
Thanks to Life Of Hope for providing shoes for all the children on “The Other Side” and to Lifepointe Church for helping to provide the Christmas bonus to all of the teachers… to the Cincinnati Occupational Therapy Institute for a very generous donation… and to and to all of the individual donors who responded with such incredible generosity during such challenging and uncertain economic times here in the States.
Thank you again for providing school shoes for the kids to wear as they begin a new year! Here are some photos from the bowling party and of some of the children from both of the schools as they received their school shoes:
