*** Helping Madison's Community and Helping Arround the World***
QUINDIANOS UNIDOS POR COLOMBIA MADISON NJ
We are a non-profit organization founded on February 7, 2003, by six Colombian's who immigrated to Madison and with the spirit of helping others and full of gratitude with the town and people who help them in their new lives.
For the first couple of years, we focused on helping the town in its needs as the Madison May Day Project. At the same time we were constatly raising funds for our schoolarship program in Colombia, for students in need and for deserving students in the Madison area.
In 2007 our eyes were open by new members, new ideas and our love to help others grew even more. We started to give more to the comunity as our way to say THANK YOU for helping us help others. It was then we started with Free health fairs every 2 to 3 months. These health fairs are open to ANYONE (race/color/age) as we understood that the whole world is in need. We started with Toys for Tots and we decided to send all these toys to our kids in Colombia for christmas and also save some toys for"The Arrival of Tree Kings" (January 6) to celebrate it in Madison area for our kids in need.
We have also ran different events such as bringing the Colombian Consulate serivces to the Area a couple times a year. Help with disaster times as the earthquakes in Chile, Haiti and Japan by food and cloth colecction. Also small things like translations, citizen-ship classes and much more.
We are a Colombian Community and proud of living in Madison, New. Jersey.
