Visting local school, childrens home or orphanage

My family of 4 will be visiting CR for the 1st time in February. When we travel we like to visit local shelters or orphanages and bring needed supplies or make a donation. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hopefully others will reply with other options.

What a wonderful gesture!! I agree the Roberta Felix foundation is one of the best organizations around, and the money definitely goes to the needy. God bless you!

Thank you for the suggestion. What a wonderful organization. I tried to click on the 'contact us' and the 'donations' link on the website but I receive an error message. Does anyone know an email for Robbie Felix? I'd love to get in touch with her and see how we can help. Many thanks!

Hi,

Yes I notice that some of the links and pages on the web site seem to be not working.

Googling found me there 2 contact emails

rfelix@yahoo.com

felixfundacion@yahoo.com

However, if those do not work you can try to contact the foundation through Hotel California (Roberta felix is the owner)

info@hotel-california.com
