Cheryl’s Shoebox and Brighter Future Building Communities

It is a great feeling when people reach out to Cheryl’s Shoebox for assistance and we are able to help. Last week we worked with “Brighter Future Building Communities” to supply migrant farm workers and their families working in and around Punte Perala with shoes, soccer balls, and clothing. Cheryl’s shoebox donated 43 pairs of custom fit new Huaraches (sturdy leather work shoes) and about 50 pairs of used shoes. Freda Thompson donated new clothing and soccer balls and Tammy Carruthers Prust from Nacho Daddy Restaurant supplied new underwear and clothing. A great community effort by all! Learn More about Brighter Future Building Communities here on their Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/BrighterFutureBuildingCommunities/ Brighter Future Building Communities is a volunteer effort dedicated to improving the quality of life of vulnerable families and children.

Fútbol Shoe Fun!

Over the last few years we have been receiving many pairs of soccer shoes and we have been holding on to them for the right opportunity. For anyone with soccer kids, you know that these shoes are expensive and kids grow out of them yearly! We found our perfect match! Saturday, February 11th Cheryl’s Shoebox had a great day out in a rural colonia of Magisterio with 25 fútbol loving kids. The program not only teaches the beloved sport of Mexico but also focuses on after school education including English class to every child! This soccer program is sponsored by Community Impact and assisted by Pastor Luis. Cheryl’s Shoebox is happy to announce we will be continuing to support this program throughout the year and all 75 children in the program. We would like to thank our volunteers for the day and hope you had as much fun as we did. Freda Thompson, Yolanda Alatorre, Jaime Baldridge & Dean McConkey and of course all the donors that keep Cheryl’s Shoebox Running.   Recommend on Facebook Tweet about...

El Colorado After School Program

On October 11th we completed our school year giveaways. We put new tennis shoes on the 112 students in the after school program located in the colonia of El Colorado, which is in an area out past Ixtapa. This program was started by Pastor Ric Lehman and CompasioNet. They have a wonderful teacher there Lore, who works beautifully with these children. We were greeted by the children in English saying “Hello how are you? We are fine thank you” and singing of the ABC song. It was a wonderful presentation to welcome and thank us. We then proceeded to fitting them with new tennis shoes. They were all delighted! Thank you to our volunteers of the day Debbie Doucette, and Sterling O’Ran. As well as all of our generous donators, none of this would be possible without your giving hearts! Recommend on Facebook Tweet about...
