ZAPATOS PARA LOS NINOS Shoes for the Children Annual Christmas Party and Shoe Drive
December is here, and we are collecting shoes and donations for our annual Christmas Party and shoe delivery. Last year every child that came for shoes walked away with a new pair for Christmas!
This is the one time of year we only collect new shoes in order to make each child feel extra special.
Not only do we distribute shoes, but we join with the local community to provide a meal and a small gift. It is a special event, as for some of the children, it will be their only Christmas gift. They are already looking forward to it on December 24th.
If you would like to donate shoes, please contact Greg Snider at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to contribute monies so we can purchase shoes, food, or small toys, please also contact Greg at the email address above or go to our website for Pay Pal http://www.islazapatos.blogspot.mx/ We will happily send you photos of the children who receive your gifts. Greg and Natalie

November-December 2013...Amigos of Isla Contoy doing environmental workshops teaching students about reusing, recycling, repurposing; about identifying materials that can be used to create useful or beautiful objects. While discussing the importance of the three R's, they taught the importance of saving bottles, plastic, cans, cardboard, newpaper, etc for your creations.
Se fomentó entre los niños y adultos la cultura del reciclaje enseñándolos a reutilizar el material de desecho de sus casas o escuelas para crear objetos utilitarios. Aprendierón a identificar los materiales que se pueden reusar y la manera de utilizarlos. Se les informo acerca de la importancia de las tres erres y se les pidió que guarden sus botellas, plásticos, latas, cajas de cartón, periódico, etc.. para la elaboración de sus manualidades.
