About Us

Amelia_HazelPopos Hormiguitas Foundatios was started in June 2009 by Amelia Maria Elena Mendoza and Hazel Arroyo.  They realized the children and the elderly in Nicaragua were having extremely hard times maintaining a decent standard of life. Our founders began collecting used articles of clothing and whenever they traveled to Nicaragua, they would bring the donations to churches. The commitment Amelia Maria Elena and Hazel had, reached a point where they and their relatives stopped bringing their own luggage and instead they would use all the available space the airline allowed, to bring the donations to different churches in Nicaragua.

Word of their efforts spread and more women joined and the collection of donations expanded to toys and some articles in good condition. The amount of articles increased dramatically and our next challenge was to find a way to bring all these donations in an affordable, efficient manner. Ocean transportation became the obvious choice and we send our donations to Nicaragua in containers and it is distributed by both, catholic and evangelical churches.

We are receiving donations at CubeSmart. Open 7 days a week. We do not accept cash. Any contribution should be thru PayPal on our web page, check or money order all in the name of Popos Hormiguitas Foundation.
