We have had donations of cash, hamburger meat and rice. We still need more
of the same plus 2 piñatas full of candy (2 age groups), 4- 5gal buckets of
ice-cream, hotdogs, fruit punch, sheet cakes for 85 kids, bags of candy so
they can take home and nice gifts.

Thank you again for your generosity and the willingness to give joy to these
underprivileged kids.


Parque Jose Maria Roy
