Need your help making Easter bags for the 600 kids in Comarca -

Recommended Posts

Dear Friends!
ACCBoquete needs your help!!!!!     Remember how much fun it was to put together Christmas cookie bags for the needy kids in Boquete? Well, ACCBoquete is going to repeat that event for Easter!  Can you help us?
On Saturday, March 27th starting at 11am, and we should be done by 2pm, we will be meeting at the Club House in Boquete Country Club, the same place as we put together the Christmas bags. Take the street along side of San Francisco Plaza up towards Palmira but turn left into Boquete Country Club. Take the first right after going thru the gate and go until you see the Clubhouse on your right.  
ACCB has the bus from Esperanza scheduled to make the Easter Bag delivery on Monday, March 29th to 600 Indigenous kids.
What we need: Wrapped candy, chocolate kisses in colored plastic Easter eggs, cookies (wrapped individually), pencils, small toys, anything you can think of...be creative, it has to fit in a sandwich size bag with handles. We have all the bags needed. We are also asking for gently used childrens clothes, especially for babies up to 3 years old.
Large bags of individually wrapped candy can be found at PriceSmart, Wongs (in Rey's Shopping Center next to lighting store), Song across the PanAm highway from CityMall and plastic Easter eggs can be found at Todo A Dollar Store and Wongs.
We have 600 purchased small colored bags with handles to fill. Please help make this another great event for the kids.
Please let us know if you can help

Wishing each of you a happy Easter and wanted to share with you some pictures of the Easter bags event.  A big thank you to everyone that helped make this possible.

First was the boiling of the eggs, thanks to Mort's Bakery:


                        then decorating the eggs:

Then the bagging of the Easter bags:

 Finally the ultimate goal of delivering the Easter bags, clothes and blankets to the kids and food to the dogs.  I do believe these kids remembered us from Christmas.  Also 100 Easter bags and eggs and some clothing went to Daniel Daves so he could add food from his farm to take up to other needy families and children.

This is what ACCBoquete is all about and you are a big part of it.
