We at the Salvation Army send warm greetings to you and a desire for multiple blessings for each heart that opened to benefit others, thanks to the efforts of your newspaper.
For many years, we have received the unconditional support of The Tico Times and its readers, so many of whom open their hearts yearly to share and help thousands of children via the newspaper’s Angel Tree Christmas program. This program delivers faith, hope and, especially, unconditional love and sincerity to the children.
As the legal representative of the Salvation Army in Costa Rica, I want to express to each person who participated in the Angel Tree program my most profound appreciation, remembering God’s words in the Bible: “It is better to give than to receive.”
Some 6,500 donated gifts will be given to needy children at 28 parties, beginning Dec. 20, in León Trece, Heredia, Pavas, Sagrada Familia, Tres Ríos, Guanacaste, Puntarenas community home, San Isidro de El General, Limón center and Limón 2000.
Again, thank you, have a Merry Christmas and may God bless you all.
Jorge Méndez Monge
Major, Salvation Army
