Help from the Community

Help from the Community

The total community of YOU were very instrumental in helping the Chicxulub Food Bank do well with volunteering your time, your talents, having fun, shopping and learning the language. Summary of the events that have supported the Chicxulub Food Bank: Neek Kaan Garage Sale hosted by Judi and Debbie. In December Judi and I were chatting about how we could help the Food Bank raise funds in order to be able to help with the new building. One idea we had was to host a “stuff swap” where people who had too much of something, or things they weren’t using, could donate them for the purposes of selling them. I was away for most of January, so when I got back Judi got right on things and we went to work, letting people know our plans, and setting a date and time for the sale to take part. We and several other people had fun clearing out our closets of things not serving a purpose, and then many of us and others, hunted through and chose others’ hand me down treasures and made them our own. It was a fun afternoon that took place under the palapa at Neek Kaan, and in just a couple of hours we were able to raise $3500 pesos towards our objective! Yeah! A great idea, quickly turned into a good and fun fundraiser! Here’s hoping the Food Bank’s building will be in place by next year! But we will repeat the garage sale, as it was definitely well received and enjoyed by many! Money raised 3700 pesos Judi and Debbie House Tour PROGRESO/CHICXULUB...
