Adopt -an- Angel Christmas Drive
The Adopt-an-Angel Christmas Drive benefits homeless children that are abused, abandoned, neglected, and/or come from underprivileged families.
Kiki’s quest for helping others started many years ago in memory of her beloved cousin Anthony Hartman. Her cousin greatly inspired her by the way he mentored young children and families before and after his service in the military. Shortly after his death, she started this program to benefit homeless children in the community.
With the support of local companies, friends, and family, the program has been able to help thousands of children over the years and bring joy to each child during one of the most special times of the year. The Adopt-an-Angel Christmas Drive collects new clothes, sneakers, socks, underwear, toiletries, and other necessities for children from ages 0-18. This is a cause close to her heart that has helped many children and families.

La Casa Del Campesino
Located in Penonome, Panama
“La Casa del Campesino” was started by a man with a dream to provide a temporary home for poor farmers that came down from the mountains to care for loved ones that were hospitalized for several days or attending legal proceedings. This home was built to provide lodging for these people who did not have families in town.
Before this house was built, these farmers would sleep on benches or at the foot of the hospitals, waiting for their loved ones to be released, before taking the hike back up the mountain on foot. Could you imagine how tiring of a walk this was, especially for the person that was just released from the hospital?

Embera Indian Tribe – Panama
On our resent visit to the Embera Indian Tribe we were able to provide school supplies, toys and toiletries to the children and their families of this tribe.
These children attend school in an out door classroom and are made to wear western clothing to prepare them for the outside world once they venture on into upper grades in the nearest school in town.
Their school teacher travels many miles by bus and canoe to get to this tribe once a week to prepare them academically so they will be able to transition into a city school easily.
This is a trip well worth taking. If you wish to see additional photos and learn more about our journey into the Embera Indian Tribe please click below.
