I am going to Mizata, El Salvador in March for a surf trip. The group that I’m traveling with would like to help some of the impoverished kids in the area while we are there. I’ve been working with a guy named Renato with the Christian Surfers of El Salvador to determine needed items and how to get them into the hands of the kids who need them the most.
- Dental hygiene items for kids (toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, etc.)
- Children’s vitamins
- Crayons and coloring books that teach numbers and letters in Spanish
- Small toys
- Monetary donations to pay for transporting the items
If you would like to help, the deadline for donations is February 5, 2017. You can drop items off or mail them to First UMC Cocoa Beach; 3300 N. Atlantic Ave.; Cocoa Beach, FL 32931.
Feel free to email me any questions or post comments to this blog entry.
We will meet and play with some of the kids while we are there, and I’ll be posting pictures upon my return.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Mark, this is a great project for the women and mission to support. We meet on Monday so my question to you is do you want supplies or do you want money? Please get back to me, thanks. Carolyn

Thanks Carolyn! Let me get back to you. It all depends on how much supplies are donated. The more supplies we get the more money we will need to transport. I’ll let you know after Feb. 5th.
