I know some of APAPRO members for quite some time now and I think they a great bunch a guys who like to help the community here in Hartford CT.
During the year, they organize pisco sour get-togethers to raise funds for the Scholarship for the needy Latinos from the community. They have helped and have participated in organizing activities in July (28 de Julio) to celebrate Peru's Independence Day. In November in every year, they have "Taste of Peru" to promote the great and unique Peruvian food. They are always supporting and helping other organizations in the community.
In March of 2009 I organized a "Chocolatada" -activity where one gives out free clothes, toys, hot chocolate, panetton to the poor children.
The president of APAPRO then Mario Reyes and his friends wrote me a big check, also Mario Reyes wrote me another big check in behave of APAPRO, with this funds I bought toys, panetton, and ingredients to make hot chocolate for more than 250 poor and needy children of the high Andean mountain of Peru.
Overall APAPRO is a organization with lots of experience, fun and professionals that are committed in helping the community at large and promoting Peru's rich and unique culture, tradition, dance folklore, and our delicious and varied Peruvian food.
I would like to congratulate to all the members of APAPRO for their big help and keep up with the great work.
