Yes. We do accept new, unused clothing that would fit infants through 12 year old children. We do not accept used clothing or other items because of the cost involved in shipping to Costa Rica.
Who should I contact to volunteer my time and services?
There are, at times, different opportunities for volunteers to serve in Costa Rica. Please contact Mitch.
What is the best way for me to help?
Because providing food for the children is our top priority, monetary donations are always needed. The best way to help is by donating money to purchase food.
