Buy a Book, Help a City

The El Paso Community Foundation is proud to help publish Pancho’s Song, a young adult book by celebrated children’s author Tom Fremantle. All proceeds from the book will support three charitable organizations in Ciudad Juarez, including Fundacion Comunitaria Frontera Norte, the Community Foundation in our sister city.

The book, aimed at readers age 11 and older, is the story of a young man from the UK visiting Juarez, and a dog, Pancho, that he meets along the way. Pancho was actually Mr. Fremantle’s companion during a 1,000 trek from Juarez to Tijuana.
