Farewell to Louise Flippin
Feb. 11, 1947 - Dec. 11, 2015

Memorial Service Bulletin
Future of CUPS

The CUPS board is determined to continue the mission of CUPS for as long as possible.  This will entail the ongoing delivery of medical and educational supplies to Mexico, and the execution of selected construction projects in Mexico using Mexican labor.  On the Mexican side of the border, this effort will be led by long term CUPS employee Fidencio Perez, who will coordinate with Louise's network of friends and associates in Valle Hermoso, Matamoros, and elsewhere.  CUPS will hire a part time delivery coordinator in the RGV to process donations that are delivered to McAllen.  The coordinator will store donations in the CUPS storage unit in McAllen, and will arrange transportation of donations to Mexico for distribution by Fidencio

Louise Flippin faithfully served CUPS for over 25 years, and during much of this time, was CUPS' only full time employee.  Whether leading work groups to build water wells, medical clinics, classrooms, solar stills, etc. or delivering medical equipment, educational supplies, PETs, computers, quilits, or warm clothing to Mexican communities, she found ways to share her love with the people of Mexico.  We will miss her. 

The best way to honor Louise's memory is continue the mission of CUPS in the best way possible in her absence.

Delivery Coordinator Position

CUPS continues to seek donations of educational supplies, computers, and medical equipment in support of its ongoing mission.

Likewise, we hope you will continue to support CUPS financially to defray the ongoing operating costs of the organization.  Donations may still be made through the CUPS Business Office (P.O. Box 6933, Kingwood TX 77325).

 CUPS is seeking to employ a person part time in McAllen or other nearby community in the RGV that can receive donations and transport them to Mexico.  Refer to the Position Description for details.
