Van donated to Hispanic Center in Jonesboro

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The Hispanic Center in Jonesboro got a much needed gift donated Monday to help them with their services.

Members of the Jonesboro Leadership Group with the Jonesboro Chamber of Commerce donated a van to Gina Gomez, Executive Director of the Hispanic Center.

The new van will be used to transport children to the after school program.

"We knew that we had a lot of problems with transportation in our families," said Gomez. "Children were not able to come to the after school program just because they're mom doesn't drive and dad is working or they just have one car."

The Hispanic Center in Jonesboro has 37 children are enrolled in the after school program.
