San Ramón en Acción

April 11, 2012

Special thanks go out to Amanda Rabinowitz and Dina Nivar of the Peace Corps for discussing their operations in Costa Rica and the benefits of volunteerism at the recent Volunteer Mixer. 

In addition to the English tutoring program, the Community Action Alliance was pleased to announce several new volunteer opportunities at local institutions in need, including the Regional Museum, the Senior Center, the Hospice and Salvando Corazones.

Additional information on volunteer opportunities is available on the Action Alliance website: www.actionalliancecr.com or you can contact Mike Styles at 8333-8750.

Our second Gran Venta de Libros takes place Sat., April 28, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and promises to be even más grande than the first book sale. We have already collected more that 4,000 books and educational materials.  In addition to book donations we have also had several very generous individuals and organizations make cash donations to help support the two book sale beneficiaries: El Museo Regional and the Hogar para Ancianos. 

Donations of any kind are greatly appreciated, and we are committed to ensuring that they are put to the greatest possible benefit for our two recipients.  For more information, please contact Louise Wittman at reesemickie@gmail.com.

We are pleased to announce that as a result of a donation of vehicles made by the Chinese government, there is now 24/7 patrol service in between El Empalme and Angostura. The National Police is providing new police officers to handle the patrol service, which is also a significant commitment. If you live in these communities and have something to report, call the following numbers (in order of priority): Santiago office: 2447-7146; San Ramón office: 2445-5619; Emergency: 911.
