“My name is Lupe Urrutia. I’m from Mexico. I bring my children here so they can learn things about life, and how to do many things including violin and guitar. These children will become the leaders of our community and they need culture. They love to come to Mari’s Place. I help at Mari’s Place because I like to help the kids. They need the opportunity to learn and enjoy culture. I know that Mary needs help, so I help out as often as I can. When I can, I bring Mary and other volunteers food so I can contribute to the community. I also do a lot of other chores to try and keep Mari’s Place up and running.”
