Employees raised more than $6,300 through of a variety of acitivities, including a bake sale, raffle and picnic.  The group also gathered items for the children and the center, including educational toys, groceries and cleaning items.

Centro Margarita was created to provide treatment opportunities for children with severe disabilities from families of limited economic resources.  The center incorporates the families into the children’s treatment and provides orientation, education and training to assist in the rehabilitation efforts and education of the children.
