After-School Programs

After-School Programs: Colonias Progreso, Lomas de Enmedio &  El  Salitrillo

After-school programs are located in several communities where drugs, alcohol and poverty are on going problems. Some children quit going to school in their early teens because of the poverty. The after-school program includes a hot meal, English classes, and help with schoolwork.

These after-school programs also bring in professionals (e.g. firefighters, police and nurses) to speak with the children. The positive effect on the children is great and worthy of all the support we can give to assist these programs.

Cheryl’s Shoebox has already worked with the colonia  of El Colorado in 2015 supplying 70 School shoes and looking forward to expanding our reach to Colonias Progreso, Lomas de Enmedio &  El  Salitrillo in the fall of 2016.
