What can we say about our newest partner? They spent a Whole lot of time helping support our cause. Their staff were a Whole lot of fun during the process, and got to know our Whole mission and purpose. We enjoyed the Whole process of being their partner and it was such a great experience and we hope we can do it again next year.
As you might have noticed on Facebook, Twitter and on our website our newest partner is the Whole Foods Market in Mishawaka. When we were given the opportunity to be selected as their #Feed4More partner we had no idea it would be such a beneficial two-way partnership! Not only did they help us raise funds, but they wanted to learn about our agency, meet our families and hosted events to help raise support.
To Mariah and Noy, you two were so great in managing this program and supporting La Casa! To the rest of the staff, thank you so much for your support, I know asking your customers to support our families isn’t always each but it has made you a positive force in our community.

Drumroll… The #Feed4More program raised over $8,420! So not only was it a great partnership and we both learned a lot about each other, but we raised a very impactful sum towards our Food Pantry and programs here at La Casa!
Our Yo Puedo Leer (I Can Read) class has been busy this fall! For those not familiar, the program is a bilingual pre-kindergarten program for 3 and 4 year old students. They learn the curriculum for kindergarten preparedness in both Spanish and English and have a lot of fun in the process. Our new instructor, Ana Aleman has done a fantastic job with our students and everyone is learning so much.
This fall students and staff from the Yo Puedo Leer Class paid a visit to the Northern Indiana Center for History. The students and our staff had a fun hands on and interactive educational visit at the Center for History.
We posted photos of the trip on our Facebook Page
We want to give a heartfelt thank you to our event supporters. Our friends over at Dance4Life Productions sponsored the cost of the bus for the trip. It is important for us to get our kids there safely and their sponsorship of the bus made the trip possible! If you have not been to one of their dance events follow their Facebook page and go! We also want to thank the Center for History for the tickets and all the great staff! They truly know how to make history and learning fun and are such great community supporters!
