Good afternoon Explorers! This year we are trying something new. Instead of doing a Giving Tree for our families, we are going to do Santa’s Workshop. Donated items will be available for families to purchase for $.25 and a gift wrapping station will be set up with volunteers helping. Quarters will be made available for the families that need them. This allows our families to feel that they are providing for their children and that they have some choice in the gifts they receive.
Donations need to be dropped off to Keilani or the front office by December 13th and Santa’s Workshop will take place December 15th. Please contact Keilani or let us know here on Instagram if you are interested in volunteering at Santa’s Workshop. Below are some of the items that can be donated. We have approximately 14 families with a total of 40 children who will be receiving the donated gifts. 🎁Stocking Stuffers
🎁Gift Wrap, Bows or Ribbon
🎁Gloves, Scarves, Hats
🎁Gift Cards for Clothes
🎁Slime, Play-Doh, Squishy etc.
🎁Coloring Books/ Art Supplies
🎁Ear Buds/ Head phones
Thank you for helping out our community!
In 2015, Antonio Zambrano was shot and killed by police in front of bakery at Pasco, WA. Latino business owners were already struggling with city's regulations and now, the community also had to recover from injustice and how to move forward from it.
Felix Vargas (far right) is a former Green Beret and Army Ranger. He retired as a colonel and when he came back to his hometown of Pasco, he saw the need to bridge the gap in his Latino community which now makes up nearly the half of city's residents. His group, Consejo Latino, began to work with ACLU to address the breakdown that occurred which resulted in Pasco PD fully adopting a new manual to govern police operations that better addresses de-escalation and mental health issues. Their community work still isn't finished, however. Consejo Latino and ACLU pressured the city to changed their election system from at-large system to district based. The city is now poised to elect its first ever Latina to the city council.
