When purchasing items at OXXO chains around Mexico, shoppers are asked if they would like to round up their centavos. That money is used to fund charities nationwide with a majority of recipients being women, children, and the elderly.
This week the OXXO Corporation delivered over $182,000 pesos ($12,000 USD) to System for Integral Family Development (DIF) in Puerto Vallarta. The organization said the money would be used in its programs focusing on the care of the elderly in the community. A benefactor will be Casa de Día helping shelter elderly people, and several area senor organizations . . .
