Eat the Peach Travel donates $500 from every trip to
Centro infantil De Los Angeles (casadelosangeles.org)
How often do we have the chance to give a dollar and know that every cent matters? That your moment of generosity will go exactly where it’s intended and not lost amongst red tape
of a behemoth charity?
Or, place a donated book in the hands of a child,
or see a little one running around in an outfit you donated
yourself? We work hand-in-hand with
Centro Infantil De Los Angeles. Our children volunteer
their summers at the center. We've donated funds,
clothing and our time.
As a fellow adventurer on our trip, you too have
the chance to 'pay it forward'. Whether donating
a kids book, an item or clothing, or even by
reading a book to a child, you can become
involved. That would buy breakfast and lunch
for our children for a whole month.
But, on every trip we also donate $500 in our groups' name,
you get to have a DIRECT impact on a child's life!
$500 SPONSORS A CHILD, by covering a year of care for one child in the Centro Infantil de Los Angeles daycare. This amount accounts for the teacher's salary, daily breakfast & lunch, classroom supplies, birthday gifts, and spare clothes/diapers/shoes. All money goes directly to day-to-day support for the child in the daycare, not to family members. So, ask yourself…who’s really getting the gift here?
*Centro Infantil De Los Angeles, established in 2000, sits deep in the mountains of San Miguel De Allende, Mexico. Run by a community of volunteers that aim to gather and nurture children of local, single mothers. These women, many homeless, are fighting to provide a better life for their children. Casa De Los Angeles offers a safe haven, with the support and the help needed to build a life for themselves.
*With the help of donations, Centro Infantil De Los Angeles is also able to provide medical care for families, a food bank, and scholarships opportunities, and has grown to now serve more than 100 children from 83 families. In late 2003, a construction program began building bathrooms and houses for families served, culminating in 2005 with the opening of Casa Santa Clara; a transitional housing program and emergency shelter for our poorest families. Casa De Los Angeles is an internationally recognized nonprofit as well as a 501(c) (3) recognized nonprofit in the United States and Mexico.
