January, 2018 – Pasadena, California):
The Academy of Special Dreams Foundation is proud to announce its first ever global project that served the special needs community in Mexico.
“Thanks to the generosity of Helen Woo, of the Woo Educational Foundation, Linda Lopez and Tony Borrego, Ligia and Michael Christian, Marco Rodriguez and Family, Peggy Phillips and Family, the Barajas Family and other supporters of the Academy of Special Dreams Foundation, we were able to provide food and handicap equipment to many families living in the outskirts of Mazatlán just in time for the Christmas holidays,” said Michael Dergar, President/CEO.
“In addition, we again supported the annual Christmas Posada in the small fishing town of Escuinapa where a warm dinner, dessert, goody bags and games were provided to more than 250 underprivileged children, and I must give special thanks to our yearly supporters and friends, in particular our volunteers in Mexico for their yearly dedication, generosity and passion,” said Mr. Dergar.
