Brenda Martinez, our representative in Acuna, reached out to the Arconic factory and secured two large donations enabling us to build cafeterias at two kindergartens to serve hundreds of children between he ages of four and seven years.
The directors of these schools approached us earlier with a proposal to build small cafeterias. However, after Brenda had the plans analyzed she advised Bob that what was proposed was too little and not something Paper Houses would typically deliver. The school directors did not want to ask us for much because they know we already do a lot for the community. They kept their request very small and probably expected to create fund-raisers for doors, windows, and other absolute necessities. They envisioned a small unpainted cinder block structure that they would one day complete. We committed to building 'real' cafeterias that were 100% complete and operational.
We sought bids from contractors to build cafeterias up to our standards and asked for designs. The final proposal we accepted was for two appropriately sized buildings of cinder blocks and concrete roofs.
