Nuevo Arenal News

July 21, 2011

Local schools and the city of Nuevo Arenal recently benefited from a week of hard work by a group of young volunteers from the worldwide organization Led-2-Serve. Based in Lakeland, Florida, Led-2-Serve networks with people in other countries to plan a wide variety of projects at schools and small towns that may not have the resources to accomplish their needs.

Kim Mann and husband, John, co-founders of Orlando, Florida-based U.S. non-profit Christian organization SHAPE International, coordinated another volunteer team that focused on cleaning and painting the Nuevo Arenal School. They also brightened the city children’s park by painting concrete benches in colorful colors. Local welder and metal artist “Caco” constructed a playground with swing sets, teeter totters and monkey bars. Robin North, from Moya’s Restaurant & Cabinas, where the volunteers stayed for the week, and Mike Nelson, owner of Computers and More, worked hard to provide additional leadership support for this team.

Good job, too, to Macadamia Farm owner Michelle Coutier, who coordinated yet another team of volunteers that painted the Mata De Caña School.
