Last week, CARE hosted its fifth annual Golf & Cocktail Fundraiser at Bent Creek Country Club.

The first-place foursome was named sponsor of a Honduran dentist who travels to rural schools to provide dental hygiene clinics and dental care for children who otherwise lack access to dental care.

Second-place team members were named sponsors of two levels of weekly English classes for Honduran children.

Congratulations to our winning teams and thank you to everyone who participated and to our 2013 Hole Sponsors for making this event a success!

Penn Manor YHL Contributes to La Laguna School Project

Student Members of Penn Manor's Young Humanitarian League Contribute to CARE's La Laguna School Project

Student members of Penn Manor High School’s Young Humanitarian League presented CARE with a $2000 contribution to complete the La Laguna School building project .

Previously, the 40 children in La Laguna held classes on the ground outside or walked an hour to get to the nearest school. Members of the local community have all pitched in to help with the project in various ways; the school walls were completed in March, the roof went up in April, and the flooring will be laid this month.

The roofing at the new school was completed this spring.

Penn Manor also sent desks to Honduras to furnish the school and our group of Dental Hygienists that traveled to Honduras with us in February donated school supplies to the community to use in its new facility. Our supporters have helped make the dream of education become a reality for the families of the La Laguna community.  We look forward to seeing the project completed and in use in the upcoming months. Sending thanks to YHL and to all those who have made this project possible!
