The Acción En La Cruz volunteer workers were back out in force last week after an unfortunate hiatus since mid-August when funds to buy supplies for the dispensas that the workers receive as compensation ran out. Thanks to a successful benefit 2 weeks ago, the program will be able to operate for at least the next month and a half.

The workers started back in at the Campo de Futbol (soccer field) at the end of calle Coral as this area sees constant use from children, taxi drivers and high school students and is in constant need of maintenance. The Acción En La Cruz workers perform the ONLY maintenance that this high traffic area sees. Several large areas of town NOT serviced by any other group are regularly cleaned by AELC including the arroyo, El Mangal (Los Mangos), Las Gaviotas, Playa Manzilla, and the entire Punta de Mita Highway in La Cruz.

Every Monday, Wednesday & Friday three different volunteers work 2 hours in La Cruz cleaning streets, sidewalks, lots and school grounds as well as painting, landscaping and other functions identified by the local coordinator and La Cruz’s delegado. For the two hours of community service, volunteers receive a "despensa" containing rice, dried beans, boxed milk, soup noodles, canned tuna, corn meal, tomato sauce, cooking oil and toilet paper.

The Acción En La Cruz program is entirely privately funded by La Cruz supporters who understand the value of this self-empowering program and see the valuable investment in La Cruz’s future. Local supporters and the coordinator, Elena Munguia work in tandem with the Fundación Punta de Mita which handles all financial distribution, administration and legal and tax obligations.
