Despite being in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and economic hard times, the generosity to the Dreams for Mayan Children 2020 Toy Drive was incredible!
Patty set up a donation box at the hospital where she works to collect toys and also accepted monetary donations via Facebook and the website. With that she and Missey (myself) were able to buy more toys once Patty arrived to Mexico. With the trunk full, we set out for Nuevo Durango.
Once we arrived we were greeted by our community liaison, Enrique Wilcab, who dressed up and handed out the toys to the children as Santa Claus. He did an amazing job! He had all the children smiling and all the adults thoroughly entertained!
Once we made sure that all the children in Nuevo Durango received a toy we set out for the next community, Punta Laguna. At this next stop Patty dressed up as Santa to hand out the toys and some much needed clothes!
We would like to recognize the following angels that helped bring so many smiles to the Mayan children this holiday season! Please be sure to spread the love and generosity during this hard time! We wish you happy 2020 holidays!
