Centro’s 100 Puerto Ricans Campaign
Honors Puerto Rican Day Parade Presidents
Centro’s 100 Puerto Ricans Campaign and the National Puerto Rican Day Parade, Inc. (NPRDP) will proudly co-sponsor a special luncheon in East Harlem to honor present and past presidents of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade on June 8. The celebration is especially significant for Centro since most of the presidents honored have agreed to donate their papers to the Library and Archives.
By donating material to Centro’s Archives they join the long line of other prominent individuals and community-based Puerto Rican organizations that already have entrusted their collections.
“We were thrilled when they agreed to choose Centro’s Library and Archives as the repository for their papers,” said Mayra Torres, Centro’s assistant director in charge of development, media, and external relations. Ms. Torres and Dr. Alberto Hernández, Associate Director Library and Archives direct Centro’s 100 Puerto Ricans Campaign, whose goals are to 1) urge those who have made a difference in our community, such as the honorees, to donate their important documents to the Centro Archives and 2) to acquire funding for the project to cover the costs of processing the collections.
