How Can You Help

The families of Chicxulub thank you for caring and supporting these programs.

Consider “adopting” a family for one year. Cost is $75 CAD per family at the current despensa distribution of once per month.
Check out your grandkids closets! If you are driving back to Chicxulub next winter consider bringing in shoes and jeans and school supplies. Airlines are becoming more restrictive on the weight allowance and these items tend to be heavy.
Blanket Program – The winters are getting cooler and we are hoping to provide at least one blanket per family to keep them warm. We hope to include the blankets with next Christmas hampers.
Warm clothes for the families and children. We are looking for “magic gloves” and knitted slippers. We accept any donation of clothing for our families. There is always someone who is in need.

Food Recycling – On your return to Canada or the US consider donating your left-over food to the Food Bank. We will arrange pick up and delivery of the foodstuff to the families. Remember every bit helps these families.
Plastic Laundry Bags. Recycle your plastic laundry bags to us. We can use them for the monthly despensas and avoid the cost of buying plastic bags.
Eyeglasses to be recycled are accepted.
Community Bulletins:Are you visiting or living in the Yucatan and have a job that you’d like to post here for the area residents (i.e. cleaning, cooking, maintenance work, etc)? Please contact us. We’ll be happy to post your opportunities on this page and relay them to our Chix Food Bank families.

Most of all continue to show your generosity and enthusiasm for this project. Without you this would not be possible.

TAX RECEIPT:

I have been asked by many people to repeat the following information of how to make a donation so that they can receive a tax receipt.

All you need to do is write the cheque to:

Canadian Food for Children
40 King George’s Road
TO Ontario
M8X 1L3
Attention Mary Reid:

Include my name, Sharon Helgason, and Chix Food Bank project and they will issue the receipt and deposit the money into the Food Bank account here in Mexico.

Most of all continue to show your generosity and enthusiasm for this project. Without you this would not be possible.

Thank you from the families of Chicxulub!
