On Monday, December 21, Rotarian Joe Vara of the Rotary Club of East Los Angeles traveled to Ensenada, Mexico to deliver $500 to Casa Gabriel Orphanage for severely disabled children. The funds were used to repair and paint the drywall of the kitchen ceiling. Cement work and rebuilding the access ramps to their therapy room were also completed. He delivered 2 boxes of hand sanitizers (40 bottles) for use at the orphanage.

He also purchased $300 of food for La Casa del Anciano, a nursing home for severely disabled elders. This provides food for about ten days. He delivered 2 new wheel chairs, 2 walkers, adult diapers and 3 boxes of hand sanitizers (60 bottles).
