It’s Finally Here…

Share

Another exciting thing happened here in San Pedro this past weekend. A container with 2/3 of a playground and a whole bunch of supplies that Dita, Ed and many others worked so hard on to organize was delivered to Holy Cross.

It could not have been done without the help starting from everyone stateside, especially Dita and Ed who saw a need and had a hand in getting the playground and all the extra supplies donated. To everyone who contributed to shipping, Tony and Kate saw it being unloaded and stopped to offer to send a few of their crew to help after lunch.

The school is pleased to announce that because of the large amount of medical supplies, they will be able to share some with Dr Daniel, Dr Lerida and Saga. Holy Cross is grateful for all the help and recognizes that when they are able to do so it’s important to give back to the community. There are so many organizations and people here that need a helping hand.

Big shout out to our friends stateside who made this possible … Sandy and Ed Settle STERIS, Corporation Kathy Janis Lance Rich and Zee Medical Corp. Yellow Freight, Bob Kraemer, Dale Philipp, Nick Barczewski, Josh Boggess, and Johnny Meurer, St. Louis, Mo.

    Mike that largely depends on when the rest of the playground makes it here – this was just the first 2/3 of it. Hopefully soon though.
