First of all, I want to thank everyone for your continued support of the Children’s Christmas Party. This year will be our 32nd Christmas providing for those less fortunate than ourselves. We have gone to a year round format with deliveries into the barrios almost every weekend. Deliveries vary week to week depending on what arrives in Rocky Point. Bikes are taken into the barrios almost every weekend.
2013 was a banner year for the Santa Claus Club. We broke all the records we have been keeping for 31 years. We passed out 1,369 food boxes, 54,760 pounds of food, 518 bicycles, 45,940 pounds of clothes and 6,737 children given toys and school supplies. We have hopes of breaking some of these records in 2014.
The amount of goods taken into the barrios thru October 2014 was 1,301 food boxes, 52,040 pounds of food, 974 bicycles, 33,740 pounds of clothes and 4,885 children given toys.
We are working year round collecting clothes, shoes, bikes, toys and food that will be taken into the barrios and distributed each weekend. If you have anything to donate to the needy of Rocky Point, it can be left at JJ’s Cantina in Cholla Bay or at the Baja Hotel in Puerto Peñasco.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to become part of this project. We have never done a membership drive to support this organization and I feel the time is right. With the economy what it is in the states, it has had a major effect in the barrios of Rocky Point. The people have come to depend on the generosity of the Americans to survive. If this organization is not what you want to be part of, become part of one of the other organizations doing good things for the people. Now is the time to GET INVOLVED.
Thanks to everyone that sent in dues early. Since we have gone to the year round delivery system, it helps to keep the flow of goods and services moving into the barrios. Dues are still only $20.00 a year and anything extra is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions about the organization or donations for the people of Rocky Point call me 602-840-1428 in Phoenix or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once again on behalf of the people you help MUCHAS GRACIAS.
Without your continued support and donations a project of this size could not happen.
