We need your help
Four Saturdays during the school year, OFNO volunteers travel to Nazareth Orphanage in Tecate, Mexico to participate in a day of work projects alongside the children and Sisters. The daylong trips begin early morning and volunteers return to San Diego that same day. Volunteers help with maintenance and upgrade projects such as painting, repairs, and minor construction on campus.
