El Primer Paso stands with Ukraine

Thank you to all who attended the vigil for Ukraine on Saturday, March 19th.  Donations are still being accepted.

The Mendoza family has been helping others for years. The late Virginia Mendoza was involved with El Primer Paso from the beginning. Her grandchildren are now carrying the torch. Her two grandchildren, sons of Angel Mendoza Jr. [an alumnus of El Primer Paso], started a fundraiser as noted on their GoFundMe page. Benjamin and his brother Nathaniel want to support kids from Ukraine who are looking for safety, home, and food in other countries. “Our Mom was born in Poland and we still have family there. Her hometown of Jastrzebie Zdroj is preparing for the arrival of about 200 families, mostly moms and kids. We cannot imagine having to leave everything behind, especially other family members, so we want to help Jastrzebie Zdroj welcome Ukrainian kids.”


Donations continue to be accepted through Venmo (@threepointersforUkraine) and GoFundMe:
