During the magnitude-7.6 earthquake on Sept. 5, the public school in Brasilito, Costa Rica, sustained significant structural damage, rendering it unsafe. Classes are now being held in the community salon. Please consider joining local community groups, churches and schools, as well as those around the globe, to help address both the temporary and long-term needs to keep the kids in school. If you are interested in being involved, please contact Randy or Kim Toltz at rantol@me.com. You can also visit the Facebook page for Brasilito school’s earthquake repair/relief effort. The International Red Cross is taking donations to provide relief to Costa Rica and the school.
