FOOD DRIVEOnce again the Holiday Season is fast approaching and the Sonoran Resorts will be collecting non-perishable food items to donate to the City of Puerto Peñasco backed DIF charity. This is our 4th year and we hope and expect it to be the best yet. Please make the effort to help.

The Holiday season is a happy one for most of us. But, remember that it is also a time when the less fortunate families of Rocky Point may not be as enthusiastic. There are many families here that won’t be receiving presents and will be very thankful to just have enough food to go around. We must always remember and try to help those in need.

We are getting an early start again this year in hopes of catching some of you travelers who don’t make it to town when it starts getting chilly in December. This should give you no excuses for not bringing at least a couple cans of food to donate. By the time you read this, we will have boxes in the lobbies of each of our resorts outside of the sales offices to receive your donations.

If you don’t usually bring food with you when you travel, that isn’t an excuse either. We have two large grocery stores plus a Bodega Aurrera (Walmart family) and a Sam’s Club. You can stop by and pick up a little or a lot but, please bring something. This small expense and inconvenience to you can mean the difference of having a meal or not having a meal to many of our less fortunate families in town.

Please drop your non-perishable donations off at one of our sales offices at any of our Sonoran Resorts lobbies (Spa – Sea – Sun – Sky) on Sandy Beach. If you won’t be out our way, you can drop them off at the Tourism and Visitors Office on Blvd. Fremont in the Melody Plaza or at the Rocky Point Times office off of Calle 13 behind the OXXO. If you know your way around town, you can bring donations directly to the DIF office located on Blvd. Sinaloa. I’m sure that they will even give you a tour if you’d like.

Anything that you can do to help will be greatly appreciated.
