Recently, we, at the Intero Foundation donated to SJB Child Development Center, www.sjbcdc.org, $10,000 to provide warm meals to our local children in need. With these dollars they will be able to provide 6,000 meals (breakfast, snack and lunch) to children. Everyone knows first hand that you cannot function, or more importantly learn, if you don't have food in your tummy. Food is a bare essential and that is a significant reason as to why we decided to approve this donation. In addition, 100% of the money goes directly to feed the children. The facility even has their own garden so the children learn the importance of growing vegetables and their nutritional value. Soon after the check presentation we received the letter below. Thank you SJB Child Development! =======
On behalf of SJB’s Board of Directors, I want to take this brief opportunity to thank you! Because of the Intero grant we will be able to continue providing nutritious hot meals to hundreds of children every day and we are delighted to welcome the Intero Foundation to our esteemed group of friends and supporters.
Once again, we greatly appreciate your support of our mission to feed, educate and empower the disadvantaged children of our valley. Many of the kids you help with your generous support are the only hot meal they may have for the day...
With deep gratitude,
Victor Hassan SJB Board President
San Juan Bautista Child Development Center
