On, Friday, April 19th, Hope Haven Children’s Home received welcomed donations from island visitors from Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Each child residing at the shelter was gifted with an Easter bag, which consisted of clothing, shoes and an age-appropriate toy as well as Easter candy.
According to a representative from Hope Haven, on, Monday, April 8th Khanh Le contacted Hope Haven via email, explaining that she and her family would be in San Pedro during the Easter weekend and wanted to do something special for the children in the shelter. They explained that their 14 and 16-year-old children would be doing a food drive at their school and wanted to bring food items for the food bank program that currently operates at the center. The donations included multivitamins, children’s Motrin, children’s Ibuprofen as well as boxes of macaroni and cheese and peanut butter. The daily multivitamins are given to the children currently residing at the shelter. On Sunday, April 21st they served 129 meals from the donated mac and cheese, along with baked chicken and dinner rolls all made possible through this generous donation.
