Relief Organizations for Hurricane Patricia
Puerto Vallarta drop-off locations:
Several businesses are working together to collect non perishable donations, diapers, formula, blankets, and other items that you feel could be used by those in need. Donations can be dropped off at Act II, Boardwalk Realty, The Property Girl Rentals.
Bucerias drop-off locations:
Our team is currently working on the best plan of action. We are connecting with the DIF (National system for Integral Family Development) in Valle and we are planning on ‘adopting’ ONE town. We will be needing bedding, clothing, personal items, basic necessities. Once we have decided on the town we are adopting, we will inform everyone of where your donations will go to. YoYo Mo’s, JD Tours, and A Broken Art will be drop off locations for donations. The John Ozzello Memorial Food Bank and Humanitarian Aid will be providing food. However, we could use donations of water along with the other things listed above.
