Quarters for Children in El Salvador
The C.R.E.E.D. children have been providing quarters that we are collecting and sending to the children at Padre Nicolas Antonio Rodriguez Diocesan School in Aqua Caliente, El Salvador.
Every quarter provides one week’s worth of drinking water for a child or adult. We began our collection in mid-October, and so far have raised $224!
This is just wonderful, and parishioner Jim Nugent, a member of our parish Social Concerns Committee, will hand-deliver a check to the school in this week.
We will continue the collection throughout the remainder of the school year. The children at Padre Nicolas School and their families are very grateful, and have made delightful Christmas cards to share with our CREED children, written both in Spanish and English, and also included bios and pictures of some of the children who are benefitting from our donations. Muchas Gracias!
