They are thrilled that through many sources and your generous donations at our weekly BINGO games they have enough food and no longer require anything for the Drive. That being said however, below is a wish list from Pasitos De Luz.
These items are needed to ensure the health and welfare of the children they serve. Anyone who brings any of these items to BINGO will receive a free BINGO card. How's that for a deal, folks?
