Making A Difference Around the World
Starting Monday, October 27th thru Friday, November 7th, the PRMS Spanish Club, Chibchas, will be selling bracelets for $5 and purses for $10 near the Jolly Roger school store from 8:20-9:00 a.m. each morning. The bracelets and purses are handmade from artisans over the age of 14 in Nicaragua and Uganda; each item features a tag with the name and picture of its maker.
For the past four years, Chibchas has been searching for opportunities to make a change by serving the community both locally and internationally. With their motto: “Children helping children, with love”, the club has put efforts together to collect jackets, school supplies, clothes, Christmas gifts, food, and other items to help those who are not so privileged. The items collected have been distributed in Union County and also shipped to Kentucky, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, and Ecuador. They partner with local and International organizations to make this possible.
