We attended press conference in Chicago where Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic owned food company in the United States, launched “Lets Give to Kids” program to raise funds for The Maestro Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization established by Marc Anthony and Henry Cardenas, dedicated to helping homeless and neglected children in developing Latin American countries. For every can of GOYA Refried Beans/Frijoles Refritos sold during the month of October 2015, Goya will donate fifteen cents to help build the Casa Hogar Alegría Orphanage in Toluca, Mexico.
Marc Anthony thanks Goya Foods and the press covering announcement:
The Toluca, Mexico facility, set to open in early 2016, will serve 70 girls in the area, providing shelter and schooling to orphans who previously had access to neither. It is the third orphanage opened by Maestro Cares since the start of the foundation in 2012.
The support that Goya Foods has provided throughout the years has been admirable and valuable to the organization”, says famous artist, Marc Anthony. “Without the support from partners like Goya, it would be very difficult for Maestro Cares to accomplish all that it has in such a short period of time. We are grateful for all the support we have received from Goya Foods. The are valuable partners that have committed their time and heart to the organization.”
