NATCA Executive Vice President Trish Gilbert joined Southern Regional Vice President Jim Marinitti and members from San Juan CERAP (ZSU) this week to give their annual donation and the NATCA Charitable Foundation’s (NCF) donation to Hugar Cuna San Cristobal orphanage in Puerto Rico. After delivering the donations, San Juan members held a solidarity meal and enjoyed local cuisine at Metropols.
