As those of you who regularly travel to Puerto Vallarta know, flights have essentially been stopped till the pandemic is under control. The U.S. Embassy this week issued a memo discouraging Spring Break travel to Mexico. This means that the tourism industry here is out of commission.
Hotels are empty and some shut down. All the associated businesses are stricken, including restaurants, bars, kiosks, beach vendors, tours and associated activities. Unemployment is rampant, leading to hunger and homelessness. We need your help to help those in the service industry in our community.
We were able to support the Vallarta Food Bank with $20,000 pesos every month starting last May. We want to continue that. The program provides food hampers for families and a daily hot meal for individuals. Unfortunately, a couple of our major commercial donors have had to withdraw because of their lack of income, so your help is even more critical.
Please recall those friendly faces who took such good care of you while you were here. It is time for us to lend a hand. The need is desperate. Contributions can be made by mail to:Vallarta Mission c/o Jeff Fulton 1507 Brookcrest Avenue Morton, IL 61550
You can also use our PayPal account at Vallarta Mission. Your contribution is tax-deductible. If you’re in town, we’ll gladly accept cash for this outreach effort.
Please be assured that we understand if you are unable to do this right now. The need is great everywhere, and we do what we can.
Blessings as we struggle through this pandemic.
