Our firm is proud to have become a supporter of Rancho Feliz Charitable Foundation through sponsoring the education of two children in the border town of Agua Prieta, Sonora, just the other side of the line from Douglas, Arizona.
Rancho Feliz is not simply a charity which collects money and passively donates it; rather, Rancho Feliz is actively involved in changing lives through educational and neighborhood projects. These projects bring Americans to the other side of the border to experience not only the crushing poverty but also the spirit and desire of the people to survive and succeed. Approximately 1,000 volunteers, many of them students, stay in an Exchange Dormitory each year, assisting in everything from establishing gardens to construction projects. Everyone who receives a benefit in Mexico from Rancho Feliz is expected to give back to others, and the volunteers who have worked in Mexico generally find it a life-changing experience.
Our contribution is to honor the memory of Highly Falkner, a longtime Rancho Feliz supporter, businessman, and philanthropist. If you are interested in more information about Rancho feliz and its programs, please visit its website www.ranchofeliz.com.
