Los Amigos de los Niños de México in the Rio Grande Valley is a group of volunteers who have had a special Christmas party for the children of Nuevo Progreso. The purpose of the party is simply to assure these kids of poverty have fun and get some gifts and food to celebrate Christmas or Navidad.
The party this year was one of the best ever. About 2,700 children were given apples, oranges, bananas, cupcakes, Cracker Jacks, Hershey bars, animal crackers, flavored drinks, hot dogs, tennis balls, pencils and all kinds of toys. A special gift of enough stuffed toys for all kids to receive one made for lots of happy kids.
Enjoy the pictures and then go back and prowl around in the website for Nuevo Progreso, which will feature many of the businesses and the doctors and dentists of this amazing little town. Tell your friends all about it. Get ready for next year.
