Over Winter Recess, Parkview School student Nathan Guerrero and his family went to Tecate, Mexico with an organization called Club Dust to help families that are less fortunate. They went with 250 other people to build eight homes in three days.
During their time in Mexico, they stayed at the Estancia Hotel where they wrapped 150 gifts for the local children and handed out 1,400 pounds of food. While some people were building the homes, another group built eight bunk beds, eight tables, and many benches.
Nathan’s father, Mr. Guerrero, who is a native Mexican, translated for the gift distribution and installed the ground rods for all the homes. Unfortunately, there have been several accidents and one recent death due to insufficient power lines before the volunteers arrived.
Nathan played with the local children and through this experience believes it is important to go to places that need help and support them. Great work, Parkview Panther!
