Location: 1024 Thomas Street, South Bend, IN 46601

El Campito is a child development center that has been serving South Bend for 50 years! They are in the process of several projects to change the landscape of their space in the community. One of the hidden gems on the property is a grotto that used to belonged to Saint Steven's Catholic Church. The school was gifted to El Campito by Saint Steven's church in 1986. El Campito's goal is to restore the grotto and the property for the community to enjoy with the families.

This specific project is nested within a larger Near Westside Beautification day. It involves serving a low income community that has suffered from decades of under investment. It's about neighbors helping neighbors and making the neighborhood a safer place.

This project could include: cement removal, trash pick up, grotto clean up and the beautification efforts around that area.
