David Denies and Foundacion Maria Esperanza celebrated Children’s Day.
DD and FME again joined forces for what is consider the most important children’s day in Argentina on August 27. The organization of the event started well before, with volunteers that collected food, potable water, toys, candies and all kind of goodies.
The children’s day was celebrated in the FME main headquarters and was available for the children of the seven community centers (soup kitchens) and children who come from depressed rural areas.
DD hired 10 buses to transport over 1200 kids to the event. Children were picked up from the 7 dining rooms DD support. Also many kids from rural areas joined us from other meeting points.
The event started with the arrival of over 1500 happy faces at 10am, when over 120 volunteers made different activities available during the day, helping with lots of tasks.
Every child was provided sandwiches, orange juice and desert for lunch.
The rest of the day, games were organized plus a musical and a circus show that was the main event. After the games chocolate milk and cookies were served.
Around 6pm bags of goodies and toys were given to every child before their departure.
Children’s Day by the numbers:
250 gallons of orange juice
200 gallons of milk

DD was the main donor of this important day. The economic support provided by DD covered all transportation for children’s and volunteers, the circus show, video recording, toys, bags, food and drinks.
