La Casa de Miguel

On November 25 and December 16, we are playing at La Casa de Miguel. We have a special event planned for these days.  We hope to bring some Merry into this Christmas for some needy families in the Grecia area.  La Casa de Miguel has agreed to let us partner with them in this project.  We hope you will join us.

Something Special:

In the spirit of Christmas and giving, it would be very nice if all who come will participate by bringing items you can spare.  The number of items you bring is your choice. There will be a place close to the front door to place these.  Also, at the collection spot, there will be a stack of red papers. To make it more personal, please sign on the front OR back of each paper.   We will separate the items into boxes and deliver to the families before Christmas.  One paper, “Christmas Card”, will go into each box.  Our goal is to have at least ten boxes.

Suggestions for items to bring:
Non perishable food         
Laundry detergent       
For the kids:
Toys, Cookies, Candy                  

With your help, we can make this a big and very special Christmas for some who will really appreciate it.  

Reservations recommended.

If you are not able to attend either of these events, and wish to participate, you may bring your items to La Casa de Miguel any day except Monday.

One more favor.  If you know of a needy family, please let us know as soon as possible.  We need clear directions to their home and your phone number in case we get lost delivering.  You can email the information back to us by replying to this email or printing it very clearly on a piece of paper to bring with your gifts.

On Monday, December 18, we will meet a La Casa de Miguel to box the items and deliver to the families.  If you would like to participate in this, you are most welcome.

Any questions or comments, please write to somebodyelsebandcr@gmail.comand we will get back with you.
