Local Crowdfund: Toys could make a world of difference

Print More

Following a week of volunteering at a daycare in San Pedro, Costa Rica, this spring Lyndzey Tefft had already decided that this holiday season would be dedicated to making sure that Costa Rican children would receive new toys for Christmas.

Tefft, 23, a student at Worcester State University and graduate of St. Peter-Marian Junior-Senior High School, volunteered for nonprofit group Maximo Nivel for a week in April at Los Gatitos daycare center.

The children at the center ranged in age from infant to 12 years old.

At Los Gatitos, Tefft spent her week playing games, doing arts and crafts, and singing Spanish songs with the children.
