On Thursday, Feb. 4, La Posada Board Members, staff and clients gathered with representatives from the city of San Benito, the Harlingen Sunburst Rotary Club and Boggus Ford Harlingen for the groundbreaking ceremony of La Posada’s new Pavilion.
The Rotary Club and Boggus Ford partnered with La Posada to host The Drive 4UR Community Car Show and Car Test this past summer. All the proceeds from the event went to the construction of the $8,500 pavilion on La Posada’s grounds.
The pavilion will be used by La Posada’s clients and volunteers for classes and activities.
“We are so thankful that our volunteers and clients will now have a place where they can comfortably hold classes and activities,” said La Posada’s Program Director, Sister Zita Telkamp. “Thank you to the Rotary Club, Boggus Ford and all of the Rio Grande Valley community for once again coming through for La Posada and its clients.”
La Posada Providencia, founded and sponsored by the Sisters of Divine Providence, is a ministry for people in crisis from around the world, who are seeking legal refuge in this country. The shelter staff provides a safe and welcoming home; mentors to promote self-sufficiency and cultural integration; and imparts values which witness God’s Providence in our world.
