An Eventful Week At Niños de Cristo
This past July, the kids at Orfanato Niños de Cristo had a memorable week. It began with baseball players from The New York Mets Dominican Training Academy visiting the children. Both the children and the players had a wonderful time and shared the hope that these relationships will continue for years to come.
That same week the children were also visited by seven mentors from Goya Foods, Inc., the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the U.S. In preparation for their arrival, the children had written cards and created beautiful works of art for their mentors. Over the course of the five-day trip, Goya sponsored a soccer tournament for the boys, gave them a tour of the Goya Foods factory in San Cristobal and took them all to the beach. On the last day, both the mentors and the children painted their handprints on the wall and said their goodbyes until next year. Thank you to Goya Foods, Inc. for a successful and memorable mentorship trip!
