ZSU fundraiser

ZSU Supports Local Orphanage-Last Day to Order!
The local membership at San Juan CERAP (ZSU) have a long-standing relationship with the Hogar Cuna San Cristobal Orphanage in Caguas, Puerto Rico. The charity houses local children in need, many of whom suffer from physical and mental disabilities. Throughout the year, members from ZSU donate their time and love to comfort the children by reading to them, playing games, and keeping them engaged with the world around them. Consider supporting their cause by buying a shirt.
