What a great way to wrap up the year with the Casa de Amistad annual Holiday Party! This is a great way to meet Casa de Amistad’s staff, board members, volunteers and participants. Come be a part of the party as we celebrate our accomplishments and look forward to our future endeavors. Our holiday festivities celebrate the cultural contributions made by Latinos/Hispanics and it is a wonderful way to meet with members of the community we serve.
Holiday Open House 2015
Sunday December 13 2015 – 6PM-7PM
LOCATION: Catedral de Fe (6425 Jefferson Road Athens, GA)
We also like to take advantage of the holiday season to engage in the spirit of giving to those in need. At our Holiday Open House, Casa de Amistad’s families receive a food basket with staple food items that our clients will love. Local churches have generously supported this program by contributing baskets, but we always welcome the donations of individuals, families and/or groups . If you would like to sponsor a family by preparing a holiday food basket, contact Alex Borges at firstname.lastname@example.org. Donated baskets may be taken directly to LACSI (www.lacsiuga.org). Below is a lift of suggested items for the baskets:
- 5 lbs. of rice
- 2 lb. bag of dried pinto beans
- Canned jalapeños
- Chili peppers (e.g., dried Red New Mexico pods)
- Cooking oil
- Mole (brown sauce for the meat)
- Masa (flour for making tortillas)
- Bag of Onions
- Adobo powder (similar to garlic salt) in spice area or fresh garlic
- Canned tomatoes
- Bag of cookies or cake
- A gift certificate from any grocery story for $10.00 or $15.00
Please consider giving to our cause!
Programs like these have taken place at Casa de Amistad for over 10 years. Without the support from the community, we cannot carry out these services next year. This is a very crucial time for us and we need your help. We are facing the possibility of closing our doors permanently. Please make a donation to our gofundme campaign below, so that we can continue serving our community in need.
