Check out Gándara Center’s December Newsletter online. You can read about our successful #ValleyGivingTuesday efforts; end-of-year giving opportunities to our Aventura! Summer Camp Scholarship; and our Executive Director Henry East-Trou’s retirement in May of 2019. Pictured above are some of our Aventura! campers at Camp STAR Angelina in Springfield’s Forest Park.

Also in the newsletter: photos from our Blood Drive/Job Fair on December 11; the Spanish version of the Gándara Center website; and treatments for seasonal affective disorder.

In addition, our agency sponsored Janiah Rivera in the Miss Bella Hispana Pageant at the MassMutual Center on December 1—and she was crowned Junior Bella Hispana! View photos and video of her crowning.
