Followup on our House-Building Effort in DR this Past Summer

Chip recently received a note from Jeanine Racioppo, Director of Development, Bridges to Community:

Hello 2019 First Presbyterian Church of Yorktown trip attendees,

Happy Holidays – I hope all is well!

We recently caught up with Manelto’s family, the home beneficiaries from your July 2019 Bridges service trip, and thought you’d like to hear what they had to say.

Manelto is a busy man who is always out in the fields working. His daughter, Santa, had wonderful things to say about Bridges and our volunteers. “This new home is beautiful and we have enough space for the whole family and extended family. Manelto is happy!” says Santa.

I’ve attached a photo of Santa enjoying their new home.

Our staff, Board, and partner communities in the Dominican Republic are so appreciative of the work you have done and continue to do to support our vital programming and we look forward to having you all back in the D.R. with us soon.

Thank you!
