Gillispie “Gem” of the Week – Together for Charity

Together for charity

Together for Charity – Fundación Unica is a bi-national non-profit organization that benefits the lives of children in an orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico.

Co-founded by Gillispie mom Emaluisa, together she and our teachers have organized a number of collaborative service-learning projects between Gillispie and the organization.

These projects include the Kindergarten class pen pal program with the children at the orphanage, a veggie drive, which collected fresh vegetables to send to the orphanage, and a Spanish-language book drive.

Most recently, the Kindergarten class sent each child at the orphanage an oral hygiene kit donated by Gillispie mom Dr. Tracy Hagan, and the Grade 1 students collected and donated new sheets and blankets to the orphanage.

Over Spring Break, Emalusia and Gillispie moms Autumn and Susanne traveled to the orphanage in Mexico along with their children to deliver the packages and spend time with their new friends.
