Donations for Dance!
This year, we decided to serve the communities that make our organization possible by directly supporting Cuban dancers and artists!
CubaCaribe's annual campaign DONATIONS FOR DANCE accepted lightly worn dancewear and school supplies. The items will then be transported and distributed to dancers and artists. This has been a tough year for everyone but especially artists, and this is a way for us as a community to use our resources to help support.
UPDATE 4/10/2022: We have finished the donation portion of our campaign and are now packing and shipping the items to Cuba.

Our campaign was completed with the following:
