Puerto Vallarta Opens Donation Center to Help Hurricane Victims in Baja
The city of Puerto Vallarta has installed a donation storage facility at the Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport, located in the main parking area, as a designated drop-off point for victims of Hurricane Odile in Baja California.
Miguel Andrés Hernández, Director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau, said that under World Toursim Day, the Association of Hotels, Pacific Airport Group, OCV, Trust for Tourism, Canaco, Canirac, and Coparmex, have joined together to help Los Cabos.
He said the aim of the collection center is that all citizens, not just the tourism industry, can get involved in helping the victims of Hurricane Odile.
Hernández invited the public to visit the donation center with nonperishable foods and toiletries this weekend and for at least the next two weeks while the donation center is available.
“We do not know when tourist activity will be restored there because it depends on several factors, but for our part, we send our best wishes because we know perfectly well the suffering in such a situation, and we hope that very soon all the infrastructure, hotels, travel and activities and services in Los Cabos are 100 percent as soon as possible.”
