Open house donations “priceless” for Colombian children

Donations by guests at the Office of Human Rights Equity and Accessibility open house on December 10 have put a smile on the faces of some children in Bogota, Colombia.

The office collected clothes and a variety of school supplies for the Children of the Andes Foundation as well as a gift of $30 from an off-campus donor and one of $250 from a campus “secret Santa.”

The foundation has already sent a note of appreciation, says secretary Janet Mora, with comments ranging from “the children will be very happy with the gifts” to “this is priceless!” The charity helps children and teenagers in the South American capital.
