The passion behind Adopt-a-Classroom is extraordinary, and what has kept it a major asset to K-12 schools in Puerto Penasco for the last 15 years.

It started out initially with the help of our good friends and Rocky Point residents Mark and Barb Olszewski getting us the Wish List. Each year our group has grown and now we have well over 500 members.

Sandy Spain and Barb Olszewski get together every year and throw a great old fashioned pancake breakfast and silent auction that raises money to pay the electric bills to keep the non-profit Esperanza Para Nueva Vida Community Center in San Rafael open during the summer.
