A Benefit Concert for the Children of Palomas

The Brandon Perrault and the Rhythm Mystic bands, both from southwestern New Mexico, will play a concert benefit dance on Saturday, July 10, 7 to 10 pm, at the Silco Theater in downtown Silver City to raise funds for summer meals for the children of Palomas. 

Admission is any cash or check donation, and donations of any non-perishable ready-to-eat child friendly foods are also very welcome.
If you can't go to the concert but still want to support this effort, please mail your donation to:
La Luz de la Esperanza
P.O. Box 38
Columbus, NM 88029

Drawings by the children of Palomas will be displayed (above poster based on one of the childrens' drawings).

Since school ended many children in Palomas are going without a daily meal, and your attendance will make a real difference in a child's difficult summer. All proceeds will go to food for the Luz de La Esperanza Palomas Outreach Meals for the Children Program

Here is a YouTube video of Brandon Perrault

Please help the Palomas Outreach continue its summer work of feeding the children until school reconvenes on August 23. Without your help, many sad children whose lives have been profoundly affected by the vastly unreported violence in our neighboring border town of Palomas will have no daily meal.  Read more

Palomas Outreach food donation barrel drop off locations are at Food Basket grocery stores in Silver City and Bayard, and at both Snappy Marts in Deming. Diaz Farms also accepts bean and rice donations and dropoff food donations on behalf of the Palomas Outreach.

The Palomas Outreach is a secular U.S. nonprofit organization operating inside Palomas on Buenaventura Street for the past six years. They are currently feeding one thousand meals a day to children in Palomas who would have no meal otherwise.
