Mexican Consulate on Wheels Visits East Harlem Center
For the fifth time in the last four years, the East Harlem Center is hosting a five-day visit from the Mexican Consulate's ‘El Consulado Sobre Ruedas’ or ‘The Consulate on Wheels.’ Families and community members have the opportunity to obtain Mexican passports and Matricula Consular ID cards (which can be used to open a bank account).
Since the program first began coming to CAS, over 4000 documents have been processed. Many of our own CAS families have been able to take advantage of this service. Huge thanks to the Center’s Director, David Giordano, for graciously agreeing to host and to all the Early Childhood and Center staff members who work extra hard during the visit.
The Consulate will be at the East Harlem Center through Saturday, February 26, 2011 from 9:00-3:00. Please see the attached flyer for the required documents. Feel free to pass along the information to interested families in your programs and neighborhoods.
The Children’s Aid Society is very proud to provide this valuable service to the East Harlem neighborhood and to the larger Mexican community.
