El Colorado After School Program – January 2018

On January 16th Cheryl’s Shoebox and a team of enthusiastic volunteers headed out to the colonia of El Colorado.

This is our 4th year working with this after school program in the El Colorado.

This program ranges in 4 – 15 years of age and focuses on teaching english, proper manners and help with regular school work. The program has approximately 75 students.

The students were polite and sweet as ever as we handed out the shoes after a special lunch and some singing / games.

Special thank you to our volunteers this day (Virgil Salzman, Jim Lucas, and David S. Anderson) for your assistance and Marcus Van Groeningen and the clientele of Reinas Bar  for providing over 90% of the shoes this year.

You will see the thank you notes from the students in the gallery below. We love working with El Colorado and look forward to many more years of teamwork and educating the future of Mexico.
