Summer, 2017

Dear friend,
“Cuidate”:    Take care of yourself!
Whether it is said in Spanish or English, it means:  “I care about you.  I want you to be well and happy.” The Spanish American Center puts this sentiment into action each and every day at 112 Spruce Street, Leominster, MA.
The sentiment is present when we serve breakfast and hot coffee to 30 people who drop in because they are hungry or lonely, or both.

It is there when we feed over 1000 low-income children 5 days per week for 7 weeks during the summer months.

The feeling is there during our Saturday morning ESL classes where 20 people representing myriad Latin American countries gather to learn and/or improve their English.

It is there when women and children come to us, frightened and broken from domestic violence, and they know quickly they have come to the right place.

It is there when we help someone gain legal status in the US and start on a path to American citizenship.

It is there when our elders group partakes of communal meals, healthy-living lectures and social enrichment activities.

It is there when the 10 youth who participate in our Youth Development Program help serve dinner at our soup kitchen where over 40 people congregate to eat a hot meal and partake in community.

Would you please help us maintain our vital services in your community by donating to the Center this Summer?  Our goal is to continue to provide essential services, which are now threatened by funding cutbacks due to changes in priorities at the Federal level. This puts more pressure on the Leominster Spanish-American Center to keep our at-risk families and children secure.

 They need our care, and your help makes it possible! No donation is too small. We have made donating easier through our secure web site: 

Thank you so much for your continued generous support.
