On September 15th, the Art Pratt Foundation of Old Mission Rotary presented a grant of $5588 to the Emilio Nares Foundation. The funds will be used to purchase an office printer.
When a young boy named Emilio was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), his parents felt their world turned upside down. After Emilio passed away just before his sixth birthday, his parents honored his memory by creating the Emilio Nares Foundation (ENF) to help low-income underserved families meet basic needs while their children battle cancer. Their main service is transportation to and from hospital treatments in their vans with dedicated professional drivers.
