During these past two weeks, without missing a step, all our employees as well as the corporate office personnel, got together to organize an efficient fundraiser that ran smoothly within our usual fast-paced and busy days at all our locations. We collected funds from our awesome clients and friends, welcoming each and every dollar that was given with a loving heart. All with only one purpose in mind, to provide relief to the needs and heartache that our neighbors, family and friends in Mexico, in the south United States and Puerto Rico are going thru after the natural catastrophes of September 2017.
This campaign began with a total of $1152 by the end of the first day, which was Monday October 2nd, the amount collected between what was donated by our clients and out matching funds. By the end of the weekend before last we had $24,028. Today Monday, October 16th, the campaign is officially over and our collective total is 47,200!
We are aware that our efforts might be small as the needs are enormous, but we are still so thankful to all of you who made it possible, including all the media outlets that helped us spread the word. We also want to encourage everybody to keep on giving however you can, as these tragedies will not be solved in the short term, and unfortunately, others might come.
The next phase of our campaign is to arrange for the delivery of all the funds collected. In the following days, we will share photos, videos, testimonials and all documents to show our efforts are not in vain. So, please visit our sites and social media pages to keep up to date on how we’re utilizing the collected funds.
As we stated during our campaign in 2013, we are so moved, so proud and so thankful to live in a beautiful state and of its people that hold such high civic stature and hearts of gold. We know once again that we can count on our customers, friends and employees to thru when help is needed and will forever be grateful for that.
United we made a difference!

On that occasion, Taquería El Rinconsito together with Taquería El Antojo, committed ourselves to match donations that customers and friends contributed; successfully raising together a grand total of $33,906 dollars. This time we want to give our customes the opportunity to help.
