A life-changing experience
Submitted By Tammy Mozzetti-Cox
Each morning we wake up with the thought of making it through the day, whether at school or work. Most people take everything that they have for granted. We all look forward to coming home in the evening to relax, have a nice dinner and watch TV. Unfortunately, this is not possible for everyone. Some people do not even have a place to call home.
Through the non-profit DOXA program, a group of high school volunteers from Fremont, San Jose, and San Ramon joined together to build a house to benefit a destitute family in Mexico this summer. However this is not an inexpensive endeavor.
On May 18th the students will be holding a car wash fundraiser at American High School, located at 36300 Fremont Boulevard in Fremont. All donations go only to building supplies and not for any personal and travel expenses. All it takes to get your car washed is a donation. Donations are tax deductible.
If you cannot make it to the car wash but want to help these students please visit: https://app.etapestry.com/hosted/DOXA/OnlineDonation.html. Please select "Donate to House Building Fund", and write in "Home Building June 2013 Fremont."
DOXA is Seattle based nonprofit 501 (c)3 organization that has built 1500 homes in the past 20 years to benefit destitute families in Tijuana, Mexico.
