Seven fabulous LAs are coming to ISLA from Colombia, Spain and El Salvador! Let's welcome them in style with a fun bag filled with Minnesota treats, bike/bus information, gift cards and fun passes. Sign up to donate little items here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0F4DA8A923AAFFC61-welcome

If you sign up for a slot, you can either Venmo the LA coordinators with the suggested amount and they will do the shopping, or contact one of our coordinators to arrange a drop off/pick up of your favorite donations. Please email islaLAprogram@gmail.com your preference after signing up.

If you have any other ideas or would like to donate something in addition to these suggestions, please email islaLAprogram@gmail.com. Bags will be put together the beginning of August in order to drop off at our wonderful Fall host families prior to the LAs' arrival.

Thank you for welcoming these wonderful interns into our ISLA family!
