                                         ACCB needs your help!

As our mission statement states ACCB's purpose is support first responders, other local charities in Boquete and needy community members. During the Covid-19 virus “season” the requests for donations from local organizations and groups has not diminished. We have made cash donations to The Handicap Foundation, The Dog Camp and La Estrella del Valley School. In addition, some of our members have personally purchased dog food and medicine for the Dog Camp in ACCB's name.


Currently we have committed to the needs of Rodny Direct and Volcancito Elementary School.

      1. RODNY MORENO (of Rodny Direct.) Rodny is the 24x7x365 hotline assistance project that provides a kind of "911" style emergency assistance call-in telephone service.  Rodny is a quadriplegic from birth, and so he needs assistance to do everything. He also is very dependent on a wheelchair. Rodny's current wheelchair is worn out. He needs a eplacement wheelchair. Several Boquete area expatriates have already donated sufficient funds to cover the cost of the wheelchair, (The basic wheelchair comes with one battery, but a second one is strongly desired to keep Rodny mobile at all times while the other battery is charging.). The amount needed is about $250.00 to $300.00 to cover the full cost of the backup battery and its transportation from the US to Boquete. This young man has saved many a gringos over the years and likely to save many more.


        1. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL OF VOLCANCITO: Zulay Morales, is the 4th grade teacher for this school. She is requesting support for 4 students in her group who do not have the technological media to receive their virtual classes. Their families do not have the resources to purchase the phones used to receive their lessons and do their homework. They need Smartphone phones and they DO NOT need to be new. The only technical requirement is that the phone has a FM RECEIVER and ability to install WhatsApp to communicate with their teacher. We are asking for 4 donated used cell phones so these 4 children can continue classes and keep up with their grade level. If we do not collect the 4 used phones from the community we will be purchasing new phones for them through donations.

                            ACCB will be setup at Big Daddy's outside front porch on     

                             Wednesday, August 12th from 10:00am – 12:00 noon 

               to accept donations for Rodny Moreno and/or Volcancito Elementary                                                               School 4th  graders.


ACCB is committed to donate to the Boquete community and since we have not been able to raise money hosting our bi-weekly BINGO night, musical fundraisers, Oktoberfest and SpringFest and all our other fun events, we are asking for donations at Big Daddy's.
