Buenos Vecinos de Boquete May Family of the Month

Recommended Posts

Family of the month - May 2016

Meet Dallys del Carmen Dennis 


Please meet Dallys, a valuable part of the work we do at Buenos Vecinos de Boquete. She is the Admistrator of Amigos de Boquete (not to be confused with Amigos de Animales), and has been there for over ten years. Like Buenos Vecinos, Amigos de Boquete is a food program serving the community. At AdB, the focus is on school children in thirteen local primary schools, which are provided a fresh hot meal daily. Because of her unique position in the community, and the overlapping goals of our two charities, Dallys manages the distribution of Buenos Vecinos food to twelve of our families. The majority are handicapped, indigenous, and many are single mothers.   Dallys and her assistant, Madelaine are busy ladies!

They work under the guidance of local resident, Philip McGuigan, whose family's foundation not only finances Amigos de Boquete's school food program, but who also regularly brings in containers from the US with vital supplies for many charitable organizations working in Chiriqui, including a rice supplement that benefits food programs like Buenos Vecinos de Boquete.

When she's not visiting all those schools and managing the cooks responsible for the daily hot lunches, she can be found supervising a lively bunch of children with their school homework and computer use. Stop by and say hello to this whirlwind of a woman with the big smile and kind heart; Amigos de Boquete is located in the Alto Dorado shopping mall. Check out their website: www.amigosdeboquete.org

When you make that important decision to help feed the less fortunate in our community, you have truly become a “good neighbor”.  When you donate $360 a year or $30 a month (about the cost of a daily latte), your name will be added to our “Coconut Foundation” as an acknowledgement of your concern and generosity. 

Buenos Vecinos de Boquete’s wholesale purchase power enables us to furnish our clients more food than they could purchase on their own in the store with the same amount of money.


Thank you!
