La Paz Community School is a non-profit organization founded in 2007 to address fundamental socioeconomic and cultural gaps prevalent in the region.

Thank you for your time and effort in giving back to the community you are visiting.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
