Cliff Hinderman to speakTuesday, May 17, 2016
Hinderman spends six months every year in Oaxaca, Mexico. He volunteers his time at the Oaxaca Street Children Grassroots Center he started many years ago. His quote is "Remember -- giving a child a peso on the street only helps today, but investing in the child's education helps for a lifetime." He is a retired Spirit Lake High School Spanish teacher.
He will have items to sell made in Oaxaca by his many artist friends. They also have a wish list to which the public may donate. They need vitamins, toothbrushes, erasers, pencil sharpeners, rulers, markers, notebooks, colored pencils (box of 12) colored paper and Spanish-English dictionaries for the 600 children who are sponsored every year.
Donations maya be sent to: Oaxaca Street Children Grassroots, PO Box 2219 Benton, AR 72015 Phone 501-574-9040 at www.oaxacastreetchildrengrassroots.org. They are on Facebook at Centro de Esperanza Infantil AC-Oaxaca Street Children Grassroots.
Gracias to anyone who assists Cliff and his program. The public is invited to attend and chat with him, buy items, bring items to give to him to take to the center, and sign up to sponsor a child. He is known as Senor Cliff and he is like an angel helping the people.
Hostesses are Bonnie Hawes and Madge Voss and the Sarah Circle leader is Bonnie Hawes. Light refreshments will be served and a free will offering will be taken.
