OGC Employee Volunteers with Project Amigo!

Each year around Christmas, kindergarten and primary aged children in the Project Amigo Scholar program receive a complete outfit for school, funded mostly by GROW. This includes a new pair of shoes, a pair of pants, a shirt, three sets of underwear and socks. Generally, this is the only new clothing a child will get all year.
Twenty one volunteers joined Project Amigo this year for the outfit gifting. Project Amigo breaks the volunteers into teams to tackle each of the clothing groups. The shoe team fits each child with a pair of school shoes, taking the time to assure a good fit and to make friends. We were happy to have David Amorose and his daughter Rosie volunteer this year. David Amorose is from Organically Grown Company, a GROW customer, and is a huge supporter of the GROW program. Not only were David and Rosie key members of the Shoe Fitting Team, they also interviewed each child to find out their favorite foods, sports and school subjects. They were true ambassadors and peace-makers.
The GROW Fund contributed $5000 and two volunteers to this special work-week! Thanks to David and Rosie for all your hard work! If you’d like to volunteer in Mexico, visit www.projectamigo.org.
