Several local charities benefited from financial
contributions from St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Riberas del Pilar. The
monies were raised and distributed from the Church’s l Regalorama bazaar.
This annual event has been helping the community for more than 10 years,
and all of the profits go to Lakeside charities. This year, the Outreach
Committee of St. Andrew’s presented checks to UVA Scholarship Fund, Centro
de Desarollo de Jocotepec, VIHAS, Hope House, the Red Cross, the Lakeside
Youth Philharmonic Orchestra, the School for Special Needs Children, and
Tepehua Community Center.
