In addition to collecting needed supplies, Karen Sabo, Office Revolution New Business Development, fundraised over $3,000 for Refuge of Hope—an organization in Bucerias, Mexico that provides access to needed shelter, food, education, community support and more. Refuge of Hope supports single mothers and families with donations and by giving these children access to an education.  
Karen traveled to Bucerias to deliver donated items on February 10th. “I cannot thank [those who donated] enough, and the staff at Refuge of Hope was blown away,” Karen says. “We had a great time there. We started the day singing songs, went outside for some light activity, came back for a healthy breakfast and broke into small groups for classroom style learning and reading. After lunch we created a Valentine’s Day mobile for the craft portion of the afternoon.”
She continues, “With as rough as their day to day situations are, each of the kids had smiles on their faces all day long. They were welcoming of all the extra love, hugs and attention they received.”
If you would like to become involved, below is a list of items on the organization’s wishlist.

  • Gently used clothes for boys ages 8-12
  • Pants, t-shirts, underwear, shorts, swimming trunks
  • Lice shampoo
  • Craft supplies such as – scissors, glue, stickers, etc.
