Burrito Boyz welcomed Julie and Deanna from Teen Volunteers In Action-TVIA  http://tvia.org/ this past Sunday. Both pictured here passing out burritos, shared about their group of one hundred young men in grades 7th through 12th. who are actively involved in hands-on service within their north county community. TVIA’s goals and philosophy reflect that of the Burrito Boyz. Thank you for joining us, Julie and Deanna. We look forward to seeing you again and welcoming more volunteers from TVIA.

Welcome back to Cora, who manages to fit us into her busy schedule of school and swim team. This photo shares how much our Kidz Korner kids enjoy the books we have availabe and is a reminder that we are always in need of children books. If you are cleaning off bookshelves and come across children’s books, all levels, please don’t forget about us and the joy they would bring to our Kidz Korner.

What a pleasure to have three generations represented at Burrito Boyz and how special for Cole, one or our orginal Burrito Boyz, to pass out burritos with his grandfather. Grandfather Richard was visiting from Texas and joined his daughter Lynn, Cole’s mom, in filling burritos and greeting the downtown community. It was a pleasure to meet you, Richard.

Leaders and the Navy on 4th July

Here’s to highlighting three of our great adult leaders, Michael and Mehrnaz Johansons, and Jim “Mac” McElroy. This photo was snapped as they were sharing with our Navy volunteers a little history of the Burrito Boyz. Their generosity and dedication to service is remarkable. Mac offers our group humor and inspiration. His deeply felt compassion and great generosity inspire us all.

What better way to celebrate the 4th of July weekend than having the Navy join us in scrambling eggs and rolling burritos? Through an open invitation from our regular volunteer, Marci, a civilian working with the Navy for thirty years, eighteen active Navy personnel and family members joined us. What a pleasure it was to have them with us and through their effort we rolled over six hundred burritos. Thank you NAVY!
