Típicamente las festivades de esta época se dedican a pasarlo bien con familia, amigos y colegas. Es una época para expresar felicidad y agradecimiento por lo que ya tenemos. Sin embargo, también es un buen momento para compartir con los que no son afortunados como nosotros y para brindar un poco de generosidad hacia los que la necesitan. Por esa razón la siempre brillante Carrie nos va a dar un tour de la organización sin fines de lucro Catholic Charities de sus instalaciones y de lo que hacen.

Como declaran en su página por Internet la misión de Catholic Charities es de “crear esperanza para los necesitados por promocionar auto-suficiencia, fortalecer las familias, combatir contra la pobreza y apoyar la comunidad.” Después del tour tal vez tendremos una mejor idea sobre esta organización fantástica y encontraremos una nueva oportunidad para ayudar a nuestra comunidad.

Typically, the holiday season is dedicated to (joyfully) spending time with family, friends, and colleagues. It’s a time for merriment and being thankful for what we already have. However, it’s also a good time to share with others that are not as fortunate as us and spread a little generosity towards those who may need it. For that reason, completamente en español the always brilliant Carrie will give us a tour of the non-profit organization Catholic Charities, their facilities and what they do.

As stated on their Website, Catholic Charities’ mission is “to create hope for those in need by promoting self-sufficiency, strengthening families, fighting poverty and building community.” Hopefully, after the tour we will have a better idea of this wonderful organization and maybe even have a new opportunity to give back to the community!

    Hola amigos: I just wanted to let you all know that the reason I wanted to organize a tour of Catholic Charities is because of the incredible service they do for immigration, NOT because they are Catholic. The reason I bring this up is because someone just left Spanish Meetup because they "don't want to be associated with a group that supports religious groups" (I'm not even Catholic!). For the record, my desire for Spanish Meetup isn't to support religious groups, but rather to look for as many opportunities possible to speak and listen in Spanish. I try to mix up our Meetups as much as possible so that people get an eclectic exposure to Spanish. However, if I ever organize a subject matter that isn't your "cup of tea," I urge you to not leave the group, but rather provide ideas for new Meetups which I would be happy to incorporate into our Meetup. Gracias....now I'll get off my soap box. :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
