Casa de Katie Update

In 2010 HoTPCA made a $335 grant to Amigos de las Escuelas project in Rio Bravo – known as Casa de Katie.

Casa de Katie has benefited in the past by many donations.  The donations were either distributed to needy families, sold for money to pay expenditures or used at Casa de Katie in the kitchen, education room, internet room, etc.  We again are asking for donations and some suggested items are:

*** children’s clothing from baby to teens, kitchen items of every type, toys especially Legos & blocks & K-neks & games, musical instruments like guitars, tools especially a jigsaw and table saw, electrical items, TVs, furniture, fans and building material ***

Donations will be gathered up in Austin for delivery to Rio Bravo.  If you can make donations, please contact Jim Maxwell at Read the full Spring-Summer 2011 Casa de Katie Report.
