Helping families in need this Christmas


Tree of Hopes is planning a special Christmas food and toy distribution project in far northwest Juárez near the Santa Teresa Bridge on Saturday, December 22, 2018.  We hope to help needy families living in one of the poorest areas of the city along the Texas-New Mexico border with Mexico.  Last year I saw first hand the great need so many people in this area experience when I helped the Comedor Aposento on Christmas Eve.  We distributed blankets and food baskets and toys donated by the the Service Systems and Associates Safari Outfitters gift shop at the El Paso Zoo. This year I am inviting friends, Rotarians and others who are interested to join me on December 22. Tree of Hopes is working on a list of families to help and we hope to raise funds to purchase food items and other items like toys and blankets.

Sign up here before December 20 to help. For more information text or email me at 915-474-1456 (Send a text to arrange for a call) or email

  1. Making a tax deductible donation. 
  2. Liking our Facebook page. 
  3. Following our blog at
