Gym and Jeans are a Go to Help those in PUERTO RICO was a TREMENDOUS success!!!!
Thanks to all of us, our DePaul family raised $600.00 – yes, SIX HUNDRED dollars for Unidos Pa’ PR (United for Puerto Rico)!!
Unidos Pa’ PR is a committee formed within the organization, Concilio, which is the oldest Latino organization in Philadelphia established to support the economic, social and political interests and issues facing our Latino communities. Unidos Pa’PR works with the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration, the State of Pennsylvania and other partners to manage resources that are crucial in the stabilization of quality of life for our families in Puerto Rico. Concilio ensures that 100% of funds collected via Unidos Pa’ PR go directly to those who need it the most in Puerto Rico.
Concilio’s Executive Director, Señor Banegas, came to our school, took pictures with our scholars and was overjoyed by our contribution. Our funds actually pushed Unidos Pa’ PR’s total to $100,000.00 that is going directly to our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico!!!!
And we now have another partner, a supporter, a local “friend in service” for the betterment of our community.
