Mr. Limon Project
Building For Hope has recently teamed with Catholic Charities and are currently raising funds to help their first client, Mr. Limon. Like many other elderly folks living on a fixed income Mr. Limon has struggled to maintain his home, which is in need of many repairs. Times have been especially hard for him in the summer and winter seasons because his home has no cooling or heating system. Because of this, Mr. Limon has resorted to heating his home with his gas stove during the cold months. Despite having saved some of his small income to afford the upkeep, he had the misfortune of falling victim to fraud at the hands of an untrustworthy home repair provider who failed to deliver on services promised. He also doesn't have running water in his shower and has to heat the water in pots on his stove and transfer them to buckets and take them to the shower in order to bathe.
School Supply Drive
The Rhino Garcia Foundation teamed up with the Guadalupe Community Center to help supply children with much needed back to school supplies. A special thank you to Maggie Wilmoth, Tony Rosales, Bobby Bernal, J.R. and Natalie Trevino, Rivers Edge Gallery, Elena Garcia, The Salon at SAKS Fifth Avenue and Statue of Design. We couldn't have done it without your generous help!
