"Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try."- Gail Devers
In 1968 Miranda Otero established the Centro Mater organization in an effort to provide the necessary care and protection for South Florida's growing immigrant youth population as their parents strived to obtain financial independence in a foreign world. For Thanksgiving Change Is Ours partners with The Kevin Garcia Foundation to raise money and provide the families with hot meals. These hot meals include turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, sweet potato, corn, broccoli, corn bread, biscuits, and canned good donations.
