We hope you had a great summer. We had a busy one coordinating groups who built foundation slabs for needy families in our community, hosted sewing classes for local women, and organized a fun baseball camp for our local kids.
Summertime is also when we focus on getting our students ready for a new school year. With your help we sponsored over 20 students with uniforms, tuition, shoes and in some cases, monthly transportation funds (most of them attend Middle School or High School). We also distributed much needed school supplies to the students and teachers at our adopted Elementary School. The teachers and principal were very happy to receive basic office supplies; they often go without them due to their limited budget.
We want to say a special THANK YOU to those of you who sponsored students this back to school season. We really could not do this without you. If you haven’t donated and would like to help keep kids in school and give them a chance to escape the cycle of poverty, it’s not too late! We need help to pay for our tutoring center’s monthly expenses. If you’d like to partner with us you can make a donation online by clicking on our “DONATE” tab or by mail to Vida Outreach, PO Box 1327, Chula Vista, CA 91912. Muchas Gracias!
Here are some pictures of our students buying uniforms and receiving school supplies, enjoy!
