Santa’s Little Helpers
Monday, December 31st, 2012
There is a lot of thought to give during the Christmas season and three little girls along with their mothers set out to give a little Christmas joy to needy families. Gabriella Knox (8), Arianna Flota (8) and Alejandra Flota (9) took the task of providing food and goods for three families to enjoy during the Christmas season.
The three girls, together with the encouragement and support of their mothers, organized a bake sale to raise funds to purchase items such as washing soap, bleach, soap, shampoo, tooth brushes and tooth paste, staple food items including rice, beans, flour, sugar, eggs, milk, herbs and spices, potatoes, carrots, fresh bell pepper, onions and tomatoes, along with a Christmas dinner of turkey, stuffing and yams, and a toy to each child of the family.
Preparing for the season, the girls held two bake sales, one at Central Park during a sailing regatta and another at the beach in front of El Pescador. On Wednesday, December 19ththeir hard work paid off as they got to see the joy the came with presenting the gifts. The young ladies along with their parents delivered the goods to a family in DFC, San Pedrito and San Mateo. The San Pedro Sun commends Gabi, Arianna and Alejandra, Santa’s Little Helpers for their noble thoughts in taking the initiative to bringing Christmas hopes to these families as well as any person that assisted them in brining it to a reality.
