About Us/Sobre Nosotros

This non-profit organization is dedicated to helping students in Uruguay by providing basic resources for their education. We strive to collect items such as bicycles, school supplies, etc. The multiple projects (one project per school in Uruguay that needs our help) will be completed by the Tampa Bay community. Although a certain area in Tampa will be paired with a school that needs help in Uruguay, surrounding communities may help in the collection of items.

Nos esforzamos para recoger los objetos tales como bicicletas, material escolar, etc. Las múltiples proyectos (un proyecto por escuela en Uruguay que necesita nuestra ayuda) será completada por los estudiantes de varios colegios y comunidades de todo el área de la Bahía de Tampa. A pesar de que una determinada zona en Tampa será designada como una escuela que necesita ayuda en el Uruguay, las comunidades vecinas pueden ayudar a la colección de elementos.
Founder
Joaquin Borggio

Born in Uruguay, Joaquin has always felt a strong connection to his native country although he only lived there for a small portion of his life. At the age of 4, Joaquin immigrated to Canada where he experienced the Canadian culture for 5 years before moving to Charlotte, North Carolina. After 4 years in North Carolina, his life took him to Tampa, Florida where he currently lives.

       Through all of these experiences, Joaquin has always felt a need to help his native country but did not know what was the best way to do so. After much thought, Joaquin decided to start a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the education level in Uruguay in hopes of helping the country advance.

Vice President
Lauren Serra

Lauren has lived in Tampa, Florida for the majority of her life. At a young age, Lauren was taught that it's important to help those who are less fortunate. Additionally, through her connections with Joaquin, she has been able to learn all about the Uruguayan culture. Therefore, she was inspired to help these children better their education. 

        Filling Needs has truly been a joy to be a part of for Lauren. Collecting donations for these children, and knowing that she is helping make a difference is extremely gratifying. She looks forward to one day being able to visit the children she has helped, but until then she will continue her efforts in supporting these elementary school children and Uruguay as a whole.
