Supporting Castreje

A well-known community member and Spanish teacher, Gilberto Castreje, must return to his hometown in Spain. In short, a hold was placed on paperwork that is delaying receiving his visa. He has had to sell and give away all of his belongings in a matter of weeks, pick up the life he has built in Mount Ayr and move across the globe. He was forced to purchase an expensive plane ticket. Once in Spain, he will be teaching virtually to the students at Mount Ayr. This requires the purchase of all new equipment to successfully continue providing for his classes and students. These expenses on top of lawyer fees are tremendous. He could use the help from the community during this difficult transition. If you feel called to donate, any and all amounts will be greatly appreciated. Let's come together and support Castreje during this already difficult time. I know he would appreciate it immensely and it will take a huge burden off his shoulders.
