OSWALDO ARONNE SCHOOL

The "Oswaldo Aronne Elementary School" located in Soitue, Mendoza, Argentina was named after my father in the year 1991. My father  worked until his retirement as a teacher and principal of a country-school in the area.

This is the second time I conduct a fundraiser in Maryland to buy clothes for the children in the school.

Contributions are received by the "Lida and Laura Amestoy Fund". 100% of the money collected is wired to Argentina. In July, during my annual trip to Argentina, I buy the items and deliver them to the school which is 5 hours away from my hometown of Mendoza.

For more pictures and for a complete year-2008-report of donations, expenses and receipts refer to the binder in room SE 215. SOME PICTURES ARE SHOWN BELOW .

Thanks very much for all your support.
