The stove in our kitchen is gassed up this summer and we're cooking more than 1,000 healthy meals and snacks per week for all of our girls and volunteers. Your contribution to fund our cooking gas is helping us to fuel the brains and bodies of our girls for swimming, basketball, reading, math, circus classes, dance, art, music, waters sports, cooking, sewing, English, vocational training and much, much more!
Many of our girls depend on the meal program at The Mariposa Center for Girls as they cannot always count on breakfast or lunch at home. By providing healthy, filling meals and snacks for our girls we are also relieving some of the burden to families, giving the parents peace of mind that their children are well fed. Mother and caretaker to 13, Maria says, "With so many mouths to feed I do not always make enough money to put three meals on the table each day. Sometimes we skip a meal or the older ones fend for themselves. I have 5 girls that are in the Mariposa program and it makes me happy to know they are having so much fun and are getting the food they need to grow up strong and healthy."
These things are only possible because of generous, thoughtful people like you and we thank you for your support. Wishing you a happy and healthy summer!
