Avispa’s Adventures is holding its 3rd annual Christmas Celebration this year! Due to these economic times, we realize that fewer individuals are in the position to help us, help the community. However, we are also aware that because of the same, there are more families, (and children) that will have difficulty this holiday season.
We would still like to share the Holiday Joy at three separate Christmas Parties. We estimate that we will once again have at least 500 underprivileged kids in which we will provide with a hot meal and a personal gift (they all have their individual names on them) from Santa.
The First party is scheduled for December 18th for the kids at the School in Corralillos, Filadelfia. (150+ students)

The date of the 2nd party has yet to be determined.

The Third party, like always is scheduled for Christmas Day in a small “barrio” outside of Playas del Coco (December 25, 2008). (200+ on the list)
