Every year Centro and local partners rally together to create holiday baskets for families in our community that experience hardships throughout the winter months. Our baskets include a combination of staple food items and toys for children in need. We open up our application process for families in early December, and receive information necessary to craft unique baskets based on a family's request.

We provided 206 general baskets of food. Estimating a reach of 1,000 in this category alone.

Success Story
Artemio Corona

Artemio Corona started coming to Prosperidad in November of 2017.  He came in with hopes of earning his GED to attend Barber school. In the short time that Artemio has been coming to Prosperidad, his dedication can be seen through his excellent coursework. In the last two months, Artemio has passed three GED exams in; English, Social Studies, and Science. All with a score of 150 or higher. Artemio is on the last stretch of his GED program with one exam left and, is on track to finish in February. In the Spring time, Artemio will begin classes at a local Barber school. Artemio is an outstanding student who has shown true dedication to Prosperidad. We believe it is it important to highlight the work our students are doing and continue to do so on their path to success. 
 
"This experience has been hard but well worth it. It also has advanced my opportunities and my own knowledge. I got to work with great people who really care about helping others. Teachers are great and very helpful. They go above and beyond to help you succeed. Anything is possible!"
